[L2Ork-dev] feature request, view object number

What do you think about this for a new L2Ork feature? A new option in the edit menu that places little numbers next to each object on the canvas, according to their creation order. This would be really useful for dynamic patching, ie. if you're trying to connect or delete objects and you need to know their number. It would also fit nicely with the "send to front/back" feature that you've already made.

A couple of other thoughts:

1. It would probably be best if this could only come into effect when edit mode is on, a bit like the little re-size dots in the corner of a "bang". It's probably also best if it's an additional option rather than contiguous with edit mode, as the numbers might get confusing or annoying in larger patches.

2. A further possibility would be to have the same option for connection numbers. This would be immediately useful, as connection order is integral to PD functioning. On the other hand it might also provide less incentive to use trigger, and hence lead to sloppy patching.
