Hi everyone,

I find myself frequently having to enter the Options panel and
enable/disable these two options as a group:

Record -> Packing -> MOUSE_MOVED events
Record -> Packing -> Filter unnecessary events

Here's why: In our particular environment, only some of the time does it
make sense to track things at this level of granularity (when drawing
for example).  Other times we don't need this level of detail (when
changing dialog options for example).

Within a single test, I'll jump back and forth several times and it
becomes quite cumbersome to perform this settings change so frequently,
not to mention error prone because there's no indication which 'mode'
I'm in.  I'll start recording and after having recorded a complex set of
drawing operations, I'll find that I have to re-record them because I
didn't have that turned on.

Here are a couple of suggestions:

(1) An additional recording mode button that enables fine-grained
tracking of events, either adjacent to the record button, or in a
combobox with it.

(2) Customizable sets of recording modes, only representing settings for
the 'record' tree in the options panel.  You name them whatever you
want, and this combobox is in the menubar.
