Hmm, or two if it's just one vertical group. Something like this:

- left-click on unselected but visible layer selects it
- left-click on invisible layer makes it visible and selects it
- left-click on selected layer toggles visiblity (*)
- right-click opens a dialog to set layer properties such as
color, name, short name

(*) If it's desirable that the selected layer be always visible,
then selection could move to the least recently selected
visible layer or such when the layer is made invisible.

(Hope this isn't too brainstormish - just had the opportunity to
catch up today.)
