I don't want to insist, but large projects (100 or more layers) are
quite common among... common users. An *option* to allow recognize the
datatypes in TOC (an icon or els) would be much appreciated (tips are
not that handy, I can make a few examples).

Anyway I hope that at least extensions in browser will not be removed,
they are not handy just when D&D in DB Manager.
