[CLAM] is it posssible to make tracks with unique indeces?

Hi Rich,

You are right, in harmonic content we do not use unique indexes but
rather use the index to indicate the harmonic number of the track. This
has its advantages sometimes but obviously not in your case. You could
easily override this behavior by using CheckForNewBornTracks in the
SinTracking::HarmonicTracking. You could also do some post-processing
and simply multiply all harmonic track numbers by unique values.

As for the DoCleanTracks, this is a non-real-time process (that is why
it is not integrated in the regular tracking) that goes over the already
discovered tracks connecting missing bits and pieces and deleting tracks
that are too short to be considered as such.
