Hi Chris

this is very nice! I indeed didn't know this trick and will certainly use
it again in the future!

However... :-)

I am currently teaching QGIS to beginners and this for sure is not an
appropriate method for them (especially in the case you have to generate
the symbology file through a script)!

Since the user can style continuous rasters with some "button-clicking", I
believe the same option should be available for discrete rasters as well.

I am thus wondering if anyone else than me sees it as a priority for QGIS?
If yes, how to motivate the developers to take it for the next release and
/ or how much would such a development cost? (I unfortunately don't have
the competences to do it myself)

Thanks again and cheers!

Stéphane
