Is it possible to see the total (maximum) latency in a set?

Live's automatic delay compensation allegedly corrects timing based on the reported latency of external instruments, audio effects with lookahead, track delays, etc. It's possible to see individual devices' latency by hovering over their title bar. Is there a way to see the overall, total, maximum latency that Live is compensating?

Should be equal to your device/routing that has the largest latency. E.g two Compressor each with a 10ms lookahead won't add 20ms of latency but 10ms.

Thanks! Is there a way to find this number without manually hunting through all tracks and devices?

Please consider it a light feature request. :)
