If you could add something to Kentico, what would it be and why?

Add an icon on the Design Tab for nonstandard layouts

Currently, there's no indication when looking at the Design Tab that a Web Part on the page is using a customized or non-default Layout. It would be great if, on these web parts, an icon would appear (similar to the eyeball icon of the JavaScript web part) when a web part is using a nonstandard layout, so that a developer knows they can't just edit the ascx file and expect the page to update.

    Currently, the workaround is to simply create multiple web parts, because developers don't think to go check the layout before working on updating a web part's code.
