I'm definitely seeing this fixed now -- Thanks :)

Wow, I had never noticed this until I swapped drumkits (testing a new
version of an ns_kit7 dbkit) and went in to clean up some places where I
apparently choose the wrong sample for replacement.  It looked to me
like I was clicking over an existing hit to replace it but the icon
didn't change.  When I then tried to delete the hit, the existing icon
disappeared to reveal the icon for my new change "beneath" it.  Easy to
spot once I realized what was going on.

This would indeed be really cool :)  Also, having saddled myself with a
whole load of erroneously chosen replacement hits in the process of kit
swapping, I find myself again wanting to vote for a "search & replace"
feature.  And a feature whereby "right-clicking" in the bar brings up a
contextual menu of variants from the drum type currently selected in the
kit window (if you see what I mean).
