hi jog,

> it would be *very* nice to have a programmatic way to set a level for an object.I have 1300 objects and clicking again and again to reach 884 is absolutely boring.

i don't think that level should be used to set a specific level. 
basically, you should not know that an item is at the level 884 nor care 
about it. only the "relative levels" should matter.

as far as i know, this is how most (if not all) programs work.

you should be able to reach your goal by moving items to the top / 
bottom and than move up and down a few levels.

separate your items by layer if it does not work.

two further remarks from my side:
- it could be useful to add (to the align and distribute dialog?) a way 
to move an item above / below another item (first  selected / last selected)
- scripting could be useful, but...
