Remove unused files: differentiate between internal and external files

It would be great to have a way to quickly see which files are in the project folder and which are external if you want to clean up a project by using the "Remove unused files" option in the pool.

It could be done by color coding, a checkbox/radio box to be able to select between them or as simple as having a sorted list, as that will automatically group all files from the project folder together.

As now it's very tricky to use tis feature, as when you make a mistake, your source data can be accidentally deleted.

I'm all for it! And I'd go further:
S1 should never propose to (permanently) delete external files,
leaving external files unchecked by default in the list!

Alternative: There could also be another command: "remove unused internal files"...

This request needs more love.

It's absolutely simple to implement and would help a lot.

It's a no-brainer for the development team!
