Swap Scratch Pad with Main Arrangement

I've seen some nice FRs about the Scratch pad, but not one exactly like this, so my suggestion would be to be able to swap a scratch pad (usually the currect one open) with the original main arrangement, so that it becomes the main arrangement.

I notice that I work "forwards". The first idea obviously begins in the main window. Then I have a few friends over and we jam the song, which I record in a scratch pad. The song now is growing, and I want to add bits of the original idea into the second recording. Here's where swapping the scratch pad with the arrangement would really be a nice workflow. Now, I either have to add the scratch pad back into the original take, or create a second scratchpad, drag the original arrangement into it, clearing the arranger window, then go back to the first scratchpad and drag that into the arrange window. Rather cumbersome.

With a simple "swap with arrangement" command, this would keep the easy workflow that SO has.

Long winded, but I hope you see why.

Would love to see this. As far as I can tell the only way there is to do this currently is to drag and drop, which can be suboptimal with how small open scratch pads appear on a laptop. An easier way of switching the contents of a scratch pad with the Arrange view would be great!
