Better management of layers (duplicate, drag & drop)

Registered by DannyKing on 2008-09-22

Layers in Inkscape are great but they could be improved immeasurably for me if I had the following ability:

* Drag and drop layers to alter their position and to make them into sub-layers or move them out of sub-layers.
* Duplicate a layer, including all of its content.
