I see, I guess my needs are not as intense as some others! :P 

Thank you for the reply!

I can't live without them once the document gets complex.  A common scenario:

Text Layer
Object layer 3
Object layer 2
Object layer 1
Background layer

Each one containing a fairly large number of objects/groups/etc.

Once you're dealing with hundreds or maybe thousands of objects,
selections can get nutty - layers really help out there.  eg you can
lock or hide all the other layers and do a 'select all' on an object
layer.
