Add Insert Effects to a Cue Mix

Would be helpful to be able to add insert effects that just affect the signal chain of the monitored signal.  Say a performer wants some extra processing on their vocal for monitoring, like a more aggressive compression or a wetter reverb.  You can add that just to the monitoring inserts without affecting the actual mix you have going.  I think something similar can be accomplished with cue mixes, but there's something nice able not having to fiddle with sends.  

This is very similar to the hardware monitoring blue-Z mode where you can place inserts ahead of normal inserts that are just used for monitoring.  Also similar to the UAD console workflow.
