The more I think about it, the less I think we should make default
action for every particular create-a-layer case. Now custom actions
are very easy to create in a plugin. If all you need is an action, why
don't you simply make yourself a few-line plugin? This is why the
plugin system was created: to handle specific use cases.
I myself have made several of these (plugins of a few lines which just
add simple actions — which I need — to map to a shortcut) and that
fits perfectly my needs.
Our plugin API is far from perfect and it cannot do some things (like
updating the default UI); but creating actions, this is no problem.
We can both write plugins, but plenty of users can't, and for them
locating a plugin (assuming they even think that a plugin for this could
exist....) isn't always easy...
