Feature Request: timeline tells you if clips are already in use

I'd like a feature I can turn on which will tell me if a clip in the timeline is already in use somewhere else. Ideally the clip would change color and also show me which timecode range is in use elsewhere in my timeline. 

Often with edits using B-roll, it can be easy to accidentualy re-use the same clip twice.

@bbbigelow Good news – this exists! You can find it in the wrench menu in the Timeline panel, called "Show Duplicate Frame Markers". With this turned on, when you cut the same region of a clip in a second time, it'll get a colored bar on it showing which frames are used elsewhere in the sequence.

@bbbigelow Oh and also there is a metadata column you can turn in the Project panel (in List View). Right click on the column headers, choose "Metadata Display..." and then search for "Video Usage" and "Audio Usage" and turn those on. Now those columns show you how many times a clip is used in a sequence, with a quick way to jump to where.

Ah thanks! I knew about the metadata info, but not the timeline one.
