Assign object color from layer color

There was a fairly recent macro added to the software called "Name by Layer" that lets you select a bunch of objects and give them the name of the layer they reside on.  I think this is an outstanding command that works well and I use it often and it saves me a bunch of time.  I would love for there to be a similar macro for the color property, where the user can select a bunch of data on different layers that has it's color set as ByLayer and change the objects' colors to that of the layer.  That when receiving data from an outside source that is on many layers but I want to be all on one layer I can assign all the objects names from their respective layers as well as colors (might as well add in linestyle, linestyle scale, and lineweight) and then relayer everything to one layer to better manage all the project's data but still retain the properties of the imported data.  IMHO
