Ah, great.

I would hope that the start of the recorded tracks would be an acceptable
synchronization point...

Yeah, I don't think that's specified right now. In Gecko all the streams
that share tracks would be synchronized, though.

“You have heard that it was said, ‘Love your neighbor and hate your enemy.’
But I tell you, love your enemies and pray for those who persecute you,
that you may be children of your Father in heaven. ... If you love those
who love you, what reward will you get? Are not even the tax collectors
doing that? And if you greet only your own people, what are you doing more
than others?" [Matthew 5:43-47]
