After Effects expression for Photoshop

Adding a script language for Photoshop like After Effects has would be a great tool for power users.
It would instantly add thousands of useful timesaving possibilities to photoshop

For instance it could:
• link properties from one layer to another and even from one smart object to another like scale, position etc

• add randomness with expressions like wiggle. You could for instance add a wiggle position exprssion to a folder that contains dozens of text layers and thus randomize their positions.

•add a math expression that tells one linked layer to be scaled 1,8x compard to the parent layer and thus allowing for perspective scaling seperate layers.

• instead of forcing us to put layers into folders so that we can apply a layer stile to the whole folder and adjustment layer containing layer stile properties could be linked to different layers. That way, the user is not forced to put layers into a folder just so that he can affect several layers with one layer stile that is applied to the folder

• store variables in an expression layer that is linked to text layers. So instead of editing dozens of text layers all by hand, one could simple exchange the variables on that is applied on an expression adjustment layer and thus change dozes of Text layers instantly

The possibilities are endless
