[Bf-committers] Joining objects and merging UV Layouts has Changed in Behaviour (2.69)

Why not rename the UV layer before joining, so that it matches?
There's also vertex groups, shape keys, vertex colors, should all
those have options to join by index too? I think it's better if they
all just join by name instead of adding options here.

If you choose a UV layer in a material that is name based, not index
based, so the index should not be considered to have any meaning.
