Correct, sort-of. The source files were actually FLAC files read in by reading the CUE file, so that the single FLAC file can be split into the separate song FLAC files.

Maybe you consider these files as "temporary" in your worklfow, but for LameXP these are just normal source files.
Indeed, that I do.

Deleting the source file after (successful) conversion is not currently supported. There were requests for such an option before, but I'm still not sure I like the idea...

(This option would have great potential for damage, if the user accidentally enables it, or forgets to turn it off again)
Yep, I understand that. The key to this option is that it would only be in effect when the WAV files were created as the result of importing a FLAC cue file and the final output file type being other than a WAV (flac, mp3, etc.). In other words, as long as the imported files are NOT WAV, then the option would take effect.

Well, the "problem" here is that, once those WAV files have been added to the source files list, they are just "normal" source files.

Of course, we cannot simply delete the source files (after conversion), just because they are WAV files, because WAV files can very well be added to the source file list in other ways - CUE import is not they only way.

So, yeah, to implement what you want, it would be necessary to carry some kind of additional "tag" along with each source file on the list which indicates how the particular source files was added to the list.

But, even then, it would be anything but clear whether the average user wants their source files to be deleted (after conversion), just because these files have been added to the source list via the CUE Sheet importer...

Hence an option that defaults to no. Yes, it would require an internal flag, of sorts, to keep track of this. It is a computer program after all. We can do anything with computer programs.

Sure, it can be done, somehow. But I'm not sure the additional complexity to make this possible is worth it for a barely needed feature.

It's not done with the flag alone. If some files on the source files list do have a "self-destruct" flag set, while others don't, this needs to be indicated to the user in the GUI in some suitable way – because we don't want to have a "hidden" state in the application that will take the user by surprise. And, if so, then you'd probably want to also give the user a way to set or clear the "self-destruct" flag as needed...
