If the user eliminates or changes button x, is there any need to adjust
buttons 1 through (x-1)? If not, you can start T=X to (the number of
buttons of group "Timeline". It won't help much if the target is button 1;
but it should help lots if the target is button 999.
If the relationship of the buttons is different such that action on button
x can require changes to buttons 1 to (x-1), I'd need to know more to offer
