Auto naming / Colour

Hi, would it be possible to implement an 'auto colour based on its name' feature?

I find myself spending upwards of half an hour naming and colouring tracks when the time comes to mix projects. I understand I can be naming as I go, but it really sucks the joy out of the moment especially when recording with somebody. I'm not complaining, it's perfectly useable - but offer a suggestion for improvement.

The inspiration comes from Reaper. There is a box where you can input rules to follow and it will automatically colour any tracks you name the meet the conditions. e.g. Anything containing the word "drum" will be "blue". With enough rules inputted by the user, their projects can auto organize themselves. Synths, audio clips and automation clips will be given colours based on their names - and since automation clips have the source in their name they would be auto coloured to match.

I hope I'm making sense, I think it could be very useful and if it's possible that would be fantastic.

And as always, great work FL Studio team - FL Studio has been an endless source of enjoyment for me and others I share my music with.
