Summary0001280: Enhance smart file handling on content import, especially for audio/reels

Try to detect reels and audio files/tracks assignments better upon file import.

Reels could be detected by first numerical occurrence followed by a typical separator like '_' or '-'. (Using any non-numerical char as a separator could create issues with UUID named files I guess).
When adding folders, each audio file could be arranged in parallel for a multitrack arrangement (the way it is now), plus, any subsequent 'Add folder' would create another 'reel' with the audio files placed behind the existing ones, not in parallel to the first folder. That would be useful, as very often reel'd content is separated in one folder per reel.

For audio, the same, plus also add detection of last digit for channel assignment, e.g. 'reel1-2' (up to all 16 DCI channels).
Currently, an added '_L', '_C', etc. is evaluated for automatic matrix channel assignment up to 5.1. This stops at Rs, and assigns HI, VI, BsR, etc. to center.
Enhance this to support all DCI channel assignments. Simply take match strings from the current DCP audio channel labels in the matrix, that is also easy for users to acknowledge that scheme.

Also, while there is a function to copy/paste content settings, it would be handy if more audio settings could be changed with multiple files selected. Currently, Trimming is possible, but I guess it would be very useful if gain and delay could be adjusted for multiple files simultaneously as well.
