I do find that Thin Draw Polygons is helpful sometimes.  However I also
find many times that I would like to be able to show only specific
layers (not whole layer groups).  For instance, if I want to rip up all
my ground plane polygons, I would like to be able to show only the
ground plane layer (which is in the "top" layer's group) so that I can
"select all" to select only the ground plane copper.
