Yeah that's grouping. Search bugzilla
(http://zerowing.idsoftware.com/bugzilla/) for plenty of design info on
what we'd want if we were to write a better grouping. That task is up for
the takers, too.

Also in the "layers" menu could be the selection for what the current working layer is, which would be the layer to which all newly created brushes/patches/entities would be assigned.

I do know that I would find GtkRadiant that much easier to use if this type of "layers" structure were added.
