Having some sort of way to include a readily-accessible text description 
for each layer (such that all such descriptions would be saved with a 
project) would be a godsend. I'm finding it's almost easier to recreate 
something from near-scratch than to try to follow/remember what I did to 
obtain the layers in a project I haven't looked at for even a few days. 
It would be even more useful if, for instance, a new layer created by an 
operation had a description that was prefilled with e.g. "Layer 
generated by union of layer XXX and layer YYY."
