Re: [Gimp-developer] Bug found: Unified transform and perspective tool fail silently when layer is hidden.

Proposed solutions:
A. Make the original hide automatically, making it unnecessary to
the layer during transform.
B. Make sure the transformation is applied, regardless of the hidden
state of the layer.

I raised this subject in the UI mailing list a few days ago. In my
opinion, A should be the solution.
B, applying a transform on a hidden layer, could be problematic. It's
not a good idea to touch layers that are hidden, so preventing any tool
from working on hidden layers is probably a good thing and all tools
should be consistent doing so.

We need to discuss the usefulness of having the original layer during
transforms. In my experience, most of the times it's a hurdle, blocking
the context for the transform.
But I'm aware that in some cases users would need to compare the
transformed layer vs. the original.
I don't think it's a good idea to rule out that situation, but I'm
convinced that it's an exception, and more frequently users want the
original layer hidden.

Does anyone have a different opinion on this one? I'm interested to
know alternative workflows where that option is more useful than hiding
the original layer.
