Description

While there are a lot of feature-centric functions, there is no function to get layer as a whole with it's properties. It would be nice to have a get_layer('layer_name') function, returning a layer object. And complementary functions like feature_count(layer) and extent(layer) etc. that use layer object as input and return it's properties.
