Duarte Farrajota Ramos (duarteframos) added a comment to T74157: Operator Search.

I can think of cases when I'd rather not have to bother adding my operator to a menu just to make it searchable, particularly when developing the addon mainly for myself or my friends or my team, or when the addon is a single operator that doesn't really belong anywhere in the UI, etc.

If feasible I'd request that whenever possible relative paths be used in library definitions, both in "indexes", user defined folders or paths to assets.

Instead of searching all operators, we can simply search the menus instead.

Duarte Farrajota Ramos (duarteframos) added a comment to D6378: WIP UI: Consolidated Area Options Menu.

One entry I would like to see available in area menus is the option to reset UI zoom for the area.
It is easy to accidentaly change zoom level with Ctrl+MMB, but resetting it back to defaults is only possible through obscure hotkeys.
Most users aren't aware of it and it is not easy to find out that pressing Home will reset zoom back to default value.

Indeed agree, given the potential amount of data types colors alone may be insufficient, though most listed implementations have around 10 ~11 data types.
Mapping those to colors I think we could manage 10 different enough hues.

I'm not a developer or in any way speaking for the Blender Foundation, but from what I have seen on this topic they are generally not very receptive to adding new modifiers at all, unless they provide substancial functionality; and even then there have been quite a few highly desirable proposals that all got refused.
This does looks interesting however and could potentially provide useful features. If this is so close to the Mirror modifier however, then it should probably be implemented as modifier options in the existing Mirror modifier instead, rather than an entirely new one.
