Yes, you are right, but I think that as works GANG modes is correct, and 
the Manual speaks very well: the NOTES are good to understand better as 
it works.
And like AndreaPAz wrote, your patches 1 and 2 "for in_out_selection" 
are really good. Thanks, Andrew_R!

For the question about using "GANG Channels" and "GANG Media" with 
Highligh (high priority) and/or In-Out points (low priority) selection  
to insert an Effect (Plugin):
I would write in the Manual that it works with DragAndDrop from the 
Resources to Timeline.
If you are using  Menu-> Audio-> Attach Effect..., and you want 
propagate the effect to its Slave track the "Attach single standalone 
and share others", in the Dialog window, have to be checked.
If you are using RMB on the Master track to add an Effect, only on this 
track  will be inserted the Effect. In this last case could be better 
changing the behaviour, and share the Effect to its Slave track but I am 
not sure.

I think it is not a good idea, sorry; it might create more confusion. 
The GANG modes are very clear and they are written in the Manual. Like 
me, if you want to use the usual behaviour you use "GANG None" which is 
the deafult.

Thanks and sorry for the long discussion (and sorry for my bad English)!
