Photoshop: new layer style: Extrude

Layer styles are useful because of their parametric and their non-destructive natures. Smart Filters are useful, but require the creation of a smart object beforehand.
I'd like to suggest new layer styles, of commonly used effects, that would help to automate time-consuming tasks.

Extrude could be the equivalent of creating step and repeat copies of a layer/object. It would create nudged copies of the layer simulating a third axis.
Controls would be: angle, distance, fade, where the copies become desaturated, blurred, and/or would have lower opacities, and maybe a path that the extrusion would follow. Think of it as repoussé light on a layer style, but would respect the colors of a layer.

I hope that other users will chime in with proposed refinements, or additional (useful and feasible) layer styles they'd like to see.
