Markers for transgenic worm lines

It appears to me that the rol-6 (prf4) is the most used coninjected
marker when making transgenic  worms.
However on the bus today i thought maybe if one injected GFP containing
plasmid it might be easier to find transgenic worms, which ,ight be
usefull especially when injecting in some tricky backgrounds 
which dont move a lot (like unc's for example).

Im sure someone out there had a similar idea and might have
tried it...
in any case what do you think?
