Lightroom: Presets to include other presets (and/or panel section-specific presets).

I like the "building blocks" approach to presets.

It almost never works for me to assign a single preset to a photo and get the results I want. Most of my presets embody only a single panel section, or maybe 2, sometimes 3. I then combine 3 or four different (absolute) presets, together with 3 or 4 different relative presets (via plugin) to get the look I want (if I bother to use presets at all).

So, this Idea is to be able to specify presets that reference other presets.

Note: this idea would go particularly well with the related ideas for section-specific presets and better preset foldering support.

I believe this idea will also go well with relative presets, so one can specify presets that include baseline presets (absolute) with a sprinkling of relative presets.

Please let us build preset libraries by specifying other presets as well as individual settings.
