Death by a Thousand Cuts - The Results!

Results rankings are in post #2. To begin, for convenience and reference, here is the full small fix list, and post-vote suggestions will now be added via this Results thread, and will be coloured green... or red... or ... I haven't decided yet purple .

1. Audio:quantize Confirmed for Reason 7
2. Audio: snap to transients mode when editing audio
3. Audio: X-Fades in seq window, with at least two curve types
4. Clips: clips that don't slide their audio inside the clip when changing tempo with "Stretch" enabled
5. Bounce: bounce clip or mixer channel to mono
6. Import/Export: MP3 format : MP3, WMA and AAC (and possibly other) formats confirmed for import in Reason 7
7. Recording: punch in / punch out
8. Stretch: Add turn off stretch globally, not just per track

9. Blocks: Add r-click “Copy Selection to New Block” from Song mode, add r-click "Copy Selection to Song" from Block mode
10. Blocks: Add renaming of Blocks in Sequencer view
11. Blocks: Allow different clip colours in Block sequencer to appear in Song mode sequencer

12.Browser: Remember initial search location when resolving missing samples
13. Browser: Remember sort type & order
14. Browser: Get rid of Document Browse List? Invariably one needs the whole folder, not just the partial list this view typically resolves
Device browsers:
Mouse wheel patch scrollage

Device Handling
15. Rack: Add Prefs > Select Devices by Side Zone/Corner only, or (as current, and really bloody annoying!) entire Device area
16. Rack: When creating channels, be asked how many?
17. Rack: zoom out view in rack
18. Rack: Add modifier key to allow reconnection of stereo cables. Even better if it can automatically work out stuff like connection to Thor Inputs 1+2, 2+3, or 3+4

Device Fixes/Additions

19. All: Paramater Handling: Type in parameter settings
20. All: Skins: or Color picker, esp Thor, Combinator, Kong

right-click "assign to combinator parameter x"
22. Combinator: velocity as modulation source in combinator
23. Combinator: Duplicate combinator routing when duplicating device
24. Combinator: Add copy/paste of device routing
25. Combinator: Add a notch mode when applicable
26. Combinator: Bring back the auto-black/white text algorithm that was dropped in Reason 5 and forever messing up dark backgrounds
27. Combinator: Routing button to FX device enabled, default to 2 > 1, rather than 0 > 2; no-one has needed a button to turn a device from Off to Bypass!!
28. Kong: Stereo delay or width control
29. Kong: stereo mode on noise drum module for reverb effects
30. Kong: right click routing templates for Kong
31. Kong: per-pad assignable parameters on Kong to solve automation issue
32. Kong: Show frequencies when you turn the freq-knob of kongs filter
33. MClass EQ: Add stereo modes
34. NN-19: sample start range toggle on NN-19 for granular or sample scrubbing uses
35. NNano : Copy/paste zones from NN-XT to NN-Nano
