Plugin bypass/activate from GUI header

In the image below you'll see that i've crudely edited the plugin GUI header to include the Activate and Bypass buttons next to each plugin that is in use on a track. In the example you'll see next to the Delay, Chorus and Mixverb dedicated activate/bypass buttons.

Why is this useful? Well it allows the user to bypass/deactivate a plugin without having to select and open the plugin. With any plugin's GUI open you can bypass/activate any other plugin from the GUI header. This would mean making each plugin instance a little bit longer to accomodate the additional buttons but i believe workflow will be improved as a result.

This would make it much quicker when switching between plugins on the same track that do a similar thing, such as comparing 2 different compressors
