Yet another feature request.
I'm finding that having usable hierarchical object names is incovenient, 
as well as running into the object name-length limit...but using 
hierarchical number scheme is troublesome to remember what it means.
For example:

HouseGroup.Room1Group.BaseboardCSG01.RoundingCSG.Curve

vs.

01.01.01.02.02

What'd be nice is a note or memo field for objects so I could have 
something like "House" for Group001, "Bedroom" for Group002, a subgroup 
of Group001, "Baseboard part 01" for CSG001, a part of Group002, 
"Rounding" for CSG002, a part of CSG001, and "Curve" for Cylinder001, a 
part of CSG002...and have those be viewable in the browser, so I don't 
have to rely on confusing or excessively long object names to find my 
way around a complex scene.
