Sounds like a good idea, I would do it in Perl if I was doing it, since I have
decent Perl knowledge and no Python knowledge and Perl is the perfect language
for text file manipulation, but right now I neither have the time nor the need
for a script like this (currently I don't even have the time to use Rosegarden
much. :-( ).

I think it would take more than an evening though, even to a seasoned script

Good luck!
