current layer::looks reporter // 1 = Front

Example:

when this sprite clicked
ask [Which Layer Should I Be On?] and wait
go to front
go back ((answer) - (1)) layers
say (join [I am on Layer ] (current layer::looks reporter)) for (2) secs
Output: I am on Layer (answer)::grey
stop [this script v]

Another idea is this:

go to layer (1)::looks block

And that would be the same as

 go to front

I'm assuming then that layer 2 would be behind layer 1?

Support. While it's workaroundable, an official reporter for it would be nice.

How exactly do you even workaround this?

According to the Scratch Wiki article, the existing layer system is right-handed:
A lower layer value is shown in front, or closer to the viewer, so a layer of “1” appears at the front.

Support. This would make sprite layers much easier to manage, adding to the capacity of what can be done in Scratch projects.

Support for current layer reporter.
