Stack obj immediately above

Objects, in a given canvas, are stacked in the order they're added. This means that, if they overlap, the highest ones will cover the lowest ones, in that order. This function is a way to change the stacking order for the objects.

Its intended to be used with objects belonging to the same layer in a given canvas, otherwise it will fail (and accomplish nothing).

If you have smart objects on your canvas and obj is a member of one of them, then above must also be a member of the same smart object.

Similarly, if obj is not a member of a smart object, above must not be either.
