Request: Forest automaterial name based on Forest name

Rather than Forest_automaterial_0 and so on. Often i'm xrefing in FP objects, so chances are there is already a material with the auto name - if they were based on the FP object name, there would be far less chance of this happening (and it's also better for organization!).

Yes, we would generate a random material name. Although not sure if based in the object's name, because it would exceed the maximum length. Also in Max a same object can be used by several nodes, with different names (instances).

Just added to the to-do list.
