Need to override the TruClient limit on using the same transaction name multiple times in a script

I often have scripts that browse our website and often have to hit the same page, such as homepage, and I would like to be able in TruClient to combine the measurements into one transaction as I do with HTTP/HTML scripts.  However the TruClient UI prevents using the same transaction name multiple times in the same script.  Anyone have a way to overcome this limitation.  I know why it is there since it has a transaction editor that assigns "properties" to the transaction such as when it should start/end, etc. so having it used in multiple places would corrupt this assignment.  But combining measurements is VERY common in HTTP/HTML scripts so there has to be something we can do in TruClient.

You can use TC.startTransaction and TC.endTransaction JavaScript API from Evaluate JavaScript steps.

See an example here
