Description

QGIS can use a large number of datasources: file based rasters, shapes, spatialite, postgis, postgis rasters, grass, wms ,wfs, etc.
In large projects it is sometimes hard to remember what kind of datasource a layer is.

It would be nice to have an option in the general options of QGIS to allow the user get a small icon beside the layer name in the TOC, representing the type of datasource the layer is.

if this suggestion has not been taken into account for legend refactoring then I guess it won't be in the near future.
