The problem with the approach Paul took in the bug report is, that it
breaks compatibility: Existing Artwork stored in XCF files will change
apperance depending on the Gimp version.

We can't have that.

However, this does not prevent us from implementing a "proper" overlay
mode. We just need to keep the old (arguably buggy) blending mode around
and introduce a *new* one with the proper implementation. Then we change
labels in the UI.

That'd be the way to go forward with this issue.
