It would be really awesome to give the New symbology gui a complete
overhaul to a tree based paradigm where nodes are

  + symbol layer (simple)
  + symbol layer (complex)
    + symbol layer (simple)
    + symbol layer (simple)
   + symbol layer (complex)
    + symbol layer (simple)
    + symbol layer (simple)

With the grand aspiration of no popups, no deep diving through dialogs
to find that one symbol layer you are after.
