When nesting multiple smart objects within each other , it would be helpful if the smart object icon (on the layer thumbnail) would include a number, indicating how many levels of nesting the smart object contains.

The only way to do that would be opening and reading each smart object recursively (seriously SLOW, and would consume a lot of memory).

The point of Smart Objects is to not open and read or composite them until absolutely necessary.
