You mean instead of looping the whole sample between the playback start
and end points, have a separate definably loop start and end?
I guess it's also going to need some kind of amplitude envelope with
release, otherwise it would be pointless having a loop end point as well
as a playback end point. An AR envelope is probably a good thing to
have with a couple more CVs to control it...

Not sure how useful that would be in a CV based sampler - sounds like a
feature that would be better with proper editing interface with waveform
display, etc. Also, I'm not actually sure how useful that would be in a
'performance' situation. And if not in a performance situation then one
is probably not going to be using a CV based sampler.
The sampler I use (Native Instruments Kontakt 3) allows up to 8 sample
loops. Can't say I've ever used more than 1!
