Well, yes, i have to fully agree with you here.
If Blender would remove zero weighted verts from the
vertex group i do not complain at all. Actually this would
give us the nice extra feature that a mix brush with weight
set to 0.0 would be a nice way to clean up the vertex group
So i am all positive to let blender remove zero weighted
verts from the vertex group AND display unreferenced
verts in black as ideasman's patch implements it.
