Of course, I wasn't meaning to sound like that at all :)

Your proposal contains a lot of good ideas.

However, I don't have the time nor the intention (currently) to follow
lengthy discussions about what *could* be done. I know what I *have* done
(well, I've done far more than the coloured buttons, but that's another
story), and if it's something that would take me around 10 minutes in order
to make others benefit from it, I can just commit it. But, no room for a lot
of changes or additions.

If the following is agreed on by everyone:

- Layer buttons (in header, object buttons, MKEY menu) contain a dot if
   layer contains something, no dot if not

- Layer buttons are pink if they contain selected/active objects

then I can commit it.
