Sweeper improvements

The sweeper function is a cool feature but we feel it could be improved somewhat. If a gap needs to be filled and a sweeper falls short by a few seconds, rather than keep the few seconds silence, RB will often go to the next track (for a ridiculously short burst of a few seconds). This causes a messy transition to the event. Suggestion: can the sweeper function be made smarter by allowing, say, any gap under 5 seconds to NOT play anything if preceded by a sweeper? This would sound so much more professional.
 
Yes I think so - I'm not quite sure what you would call it, but the effect of it would be "Don't play a sweeper or a playlist track if there is less than X seconds remaining before the start of an event. So if the sweeper happened to end 5 seconds short of the top of the hour, for example, there would be silence for 5 seconds. This situation can occur if a sweeper of the appropriate length is not found in the database. and after the sweeper ends, a track from the playlist can start for a few seconds.

This option will be added in one of the next updates, thank you for the suggestion.
