Just to make sure that my answer to Analog Kid's post ("Just got it" thread) is regarded as wish, so I put the quote (his initial idea) and my reply on this list.....

#5 After bombarding then reselecting the unit from the FS tag, can
the bombard icon remain at the last place bombed? It would be easier
IMO to drag it where you want now or repeat bombard. A CMD load thing
again for me :)
 Well, interesting idea.....Since detached artys carry on with on-call duties, it would be even more interesting to get a switch for those units:
A simple switch: "on-call" (player AI), "no on-call" (player assigns bomb. missions for this unit, exclusively). Arty units which are not executing on-call duties could leave their task pointer on the last location that got bombarded....I guess this would work way better (maybe easier to implement too), with less "click-ology" and the "rest after bombard"-command would be a real killer here, if used in conjunction with a so-called "player bombardment-unit". Also, the "rest"-switch should be moved to each and every bomb. unit, instead of being a global command for all bomb. units (= more flexibility).
