This is an important feature for the release, and on MentalGuy's todo
list. However, work has been stuck getting Inkscape::LayerManager to
compile due to a subtle detail with sigc::mem_fun(), and it's uncertain
if there is sufficient time to unstick it and finish the feature prior
to the release. Additional people's help may be needed here.
I have already mailed him with that but no response so far.
!!! More info needed - Carl and Mathieu (and maybe Ralf?) !!!
* Need to fix the freeze when dragging multiple selected objects:
I'm currently wrapping my mind around this one.
* Update Release Notes
Will do if Carl really wants to throw it all in the dust. Does he really?
