The canvas is a sort of layer that contains other layers, such that the
inner layers are clipped to the edges of the canvas.

Maybe it would make some sense for the canvas to be a layer group
instead, and to have a "clip to group container" checkbox on a layer
group. But the canvas is a strong metaphor.
