No, it doesn't allow you to color-code them. See  the documentation
(http://blender.instinctive.de/layermanager). It just assigns colors
to the buttons depending on selected/empty/non-empty/active state.

The rest is true. The always render option is already implemented,
plus a "Locked" state where objects on a layer get unselectable.

I'll try when I have time.

I'll reserve 30 minutes for getting them p4n3l1z3d, and if I am successful,
I can provide a patch including the panelization :)
