Also, the bounding box computation on some of the modules seems

cap. Have you seen this?
No, can you send me a small *.brd file that would be a test case?
I would prefer with (B) personally - only modules on the present layer
may be modified. (C) ought to be the default, too.
"Only modules on the present layer" is not exactly what I wrote, but I
like your idea better. I think I have that coded already now. I'll
play with it a little tonight and then commit the changes in the
morning. Then we will have your B) and my C):
B) only modules on the present layer are subject to individual module
moves, rotations, or layer swaps, with the 'M', 'G', 'R' or 'S' hotkeys.
C) only unlocked modules are subject to the individual module moves,
rotations, or layer swaps, with the 'M', 'G', 'R' or 'S' hotkeys.
Lastly, I implemented the 'L' hotkey to quickly lock or unlock a module,
just by hovering over it and hitting the 'L' or 'l' key. The lock is
