Ratsnest options


Hi Devs-

Currently, we have no fewer than 4 (four!) locations where the ratsnest display option can be toggled. (left toolbar, view menu, preferences and layers widget)

I'd like to drop that number down to 1-2. Right now, fiddling with the ratsnest is, well, a ratsnest of code. Reducing the places where you can set this will improve the situation.

Right now, I'm thinking layer widget and preferences. The layer widget is useful because it lets you set the color of the ratsnest in addition to visibility and preferences because there's some logic to it being a preference.

What do folks think of consolidating these? Like it? Hate it? Indifferent?
