Removing WIRE layers from Wire Numbering routine.

Nate or John Z,

I know that I brought this up before but now that the conduit builder is available I want to revisit this issue. It would be nice if I could select which Wire layers that I want to include in the wire numbering routines. I want to be able to have a layer called Wires-18-ga-MTW-Green but do not want it to be numbered. I do want it to be included in all the other wire utilities though, like conduit sizing. I am sure that I am not the only one that has come across this. I have been placing all my ground wires on a layer that is not a "Wire" layer and they do not appear on my wiring to/from lists. I also use multi-conductor cable that acts the same way. The Cable has its own number and each individual color identifies each wire in the cable so no number is needed.

Thanks in advance,
