Yes, actually, I have had that idea from the beginning, but I somehow forgot
about it during coding. Yes, will make all layerbuttons reflect the state of
the layers (empty/nonselected/partly selected/active) as well.

About the auto-arranging: I'm not sure if that's a good idea, as I figure it
might get confusing. The layers have always been arranged in groups of 5,
that's why I statically arranged them like this. What could be done is
an explicit vertical version of the manager, though.
