Re: [Gimp-developer] Unified Transform Tool - Hide the starting image

The transform tool code is a straight port of how things were done in
GIMP-2.8 to GEGL ways; and thus contains many optimizations and
architectural details/constraints that no longer apply. Removing
these, in particular the old way of doing previews; and manipulating a
live GEGL graph instead; would give the final result with the layer in
its position of the layer hierarchy as the preview.

IMO, it shouldn't be an option, it should simply be the the only way
to do this. As it is often a case, it's one of the things that have to
be done, but there's noone with enough spare time and skills to write
the code.

This is a behaviour that is common for all current trasnform tools, btw:

There's also the question of what do do about the transparency of the
layer itself:

It might be tricky to transform a layer at a very low opacity - or one
that is hidden behind some other layers originally.
