 > That's already available.  In the CRS tab of Settings/Options you can
 select if you want to be prompted for a CRS, use the project's CRS or a
 preselected CRS.  That setting is also used when creating new shape files.

 Loading an existing layer and creating a new one are 2 separate things.

 I believe that a CRS of a newly created layer should be handled by a
 separate setting in Settings>Options, defaulting to inhertiting the CRS of
 the current project.

 The exsting Settings>Options>CRS implicitely states it is for "When layer
 is *loaded* that has no CRS".
