That was not what I meant anyway. The matter is: the only advantadge
of not having a layer automatically cleared when it is created, is
sparing somw cycles if you are generating the layers content.
Generate the layers content from within thew python code is something
that, although can be done, is so slow, that the time spent
auto-clearing the table becomes negligible.
It may look as a single extra line of code for us. For one trying
with the scripts, it is one more "secret" to be found or overcame,
that might not take negligible time. That is the motive for my
