Content Browser reference count.

Hi. I would like to request that the ‘Columns’ mode of the ‘Content Browser’ have a column added for ‘Reference Count’ (Used In). So that I can easily see what assets are used by other assets, and know if the assets can be removed safely.

Currently the process for determining usage is to:

  1. Look at the Reference Viewer [Alt-Shift-R]
  2. Delete the asset and if the ‘Replace References’ button is shown in the dialog.

[EDIT] I should add the use case:

When working on a project it is currently difficult to determine what assets are being used any more. There may be many assets that have been replaced or cut. This feature would make it easier to remove old or unused content.
