on the danger of not having anything constructive to add. It sounds
like a good proposal to me. This is a potential option which could
increase the speed of certain workflows, I know I'd make use of it.
More so, the proposal seems well researched and presented, the image
really wasn't necessary. To have the first reply be something slightly
dismissive seems unnecessary.
If it is possible to use this independently of layers (or node
"layers", as GEGL will hopefully bring someday), then you can add this
in the "paint in the new layer" step. Only you'd have a lot less
cleaning up to do, depending on how sloppy you are.
