improved tracking of annot id
select method is used to generate selections with the
keep_id argument set to
True, the resulting selection table includes an extra column with the id of the original annotation. However, when subsequently using the
create_database method to create a database of the selection, the id of the annotation is lost. It would be nice if this id could also be saved to the database.
In fact, perhaps we could implement a solution to ensure that any additional fields in the selection table are saved to the database? In addition to the annotation id, another common field might be a confidence indicator.
