Bug Description

[This is a long-standing issue, but there doesn't seem to be an item in the tracker.]

When stitching, Hugin does an internal calculation to split the photos up into bracketed stacks and/or exposure layers (it looks at % overlap and EV numbers). However Hugin doesn't display this information to the user in any way without peering in the file.

Possible ways of doing this in the GUI:

In the Preview window Layout tab, stacks could be shown as a single item (maybe like a hand of cards), with only the middle exposure shown.

Only the middle exposure of each stack should be shown in the 'normal' preview view.

The button bar in the preview could group stacks together somehow, perhaps a stack could be shown as a vertical line of buttons and/or an exposure layer could be shown as a row of buttons.

The Stitcher tab could have a text field that describes the stitching job, "This project consists of bracketed stacks: [0,1,2],[3,4,5], [6,7,8], [9,10,11]".

The Images tab could group photos stacks and exposure layers together somehow (don't have any ideas for this).
