I think this is one of those "cheap on programmer's time speed ups", but also see below ....

As far as I understand batchrendering also used for renderfarm. I haven't tested this
mode yet, and I'm afraid about modifying code I haven't tested yet.

As it was laready noted - 'typically' as in other programs may not apply to Cinelerra, 
due to how  she organized internally ..
for better or worse .....

But can't you do the same with labels? Or not?
