"Root referrer" column in Types tab

For each row in the Types tab, which presents the overview of a snapshot, it would be helpful to also provide a column "Root Referrer." This column can show the dominant root referrer for the given type's instances. This would make it easy to classify the instances according to the root referrers, and possibly tackle one root referrer at a time.

Currently, this involves digging through each entry in the Types tab and viewing the root paths one at a time.

By providing the dominant root referrer in the Types tab, it would also be easy to create a report (via Copy) that covers a bit of both ends of memory leaks -- what is leaked, and which are the main roots... actually, it is this Reporting need that triggered this post (the root cause :-)

Thanks for the suggestion. This is something we will consider for the next version.
