As devin pointed out, importing the text list via fileIO is very possible.
Assigning markers for each of them is easy too using score recording.
ScoreRecording is _very_ powerful, I use it for creating the framework of
entire projects from database-outputted textlists. A big timesaver.
The handler below just sets the marker of the current frame.
It assumes dMarker to be a string.
on setMarkerOfCurrFrame dMarker
set the frameLabel = dMarker
