Don't understand your -1, at most should be a 0: these features would
not prevent you or anybody else
to get the new layer opened at the top (just have the first layer
or the group created at the bottom (just have the last layer selected),
which is the
current behavior. Instead you would let other users organize their set
of layers (which often is long)
in a different way. Don't see any reason to impose any particular

From a user point of view, this would be very similar to what I'm
more complicated to develop. My suggestion is simpler: the layer goes to
you have selected in the list of layers (that we wrongly call legend)

Most satellite imagery comes with bands in independent files. Having the
displaying them as color composites would be handy. I know this can be
a vrt file, but you have to go through the step of gdal_merge.py
May be 27 could obviate 26 (27 is very similar to the grass imagery group)

In both. Having a pseudocolor layer displayed with no key for the
colors is of very limited utility.

Don't know about formats, probably this should be a qgis feature. But
a landcover map and seeing the actual alfanumeric categories as tips and
color key (ref. 28) would be most useful. Seeing "water" displayed as
tip is much
more useful than seeing "1".
