Connected to Lyrs

If you have multiple unconnected objects on a single layer, for ease of setup perhaps, but you want each to be on its own layer, this script will select a polygon, select connected polys, paste them to a new layer and come back and try again. The result is that the separate objects are now on separate layers.
