Better Macros

Would be amazing to have macros fire a command line entry instead of having keystroke macros. Keystroke macros are limited. The softkey functions don't translate the same to all consoles and if you have a decently long macro (10-20 key presses) then even cutting down the wait times to .05s can take a full second to execute.

For example, my longest macro at the moment is only 18 steps:

Clear Command Line
List
2
1
Cue
1
Copy
List
2
0
Cue
1
"Merge Softkey"
Enter
List
2
0
Enter

This could be split into a 2 line macro if they were simply firing command line entries instead

-List 21 Cue 1 Copy List 20 Cue 1 (can even bring in the MA options here to add a /m for merging instead of relaying on softkeys)
-Go List 20

This would fire in .1 seconds instead of 1 second and I could playback more macros at one. I can fire 10 of these (if I could press buttons that fast) in the time it takes to fire 1 keystroke macro.
