+1 for "which charms use this layer" queries. This has a number of uses:
- for finding what the quality of a layer is (more use in recommended
charms = better quality)
- for the maintainer of a layer so he can see what the impact is of a
change on his layer
- to see which charms have to be rebuilt if a vulnerability has been found
in a layer
