Re: [Gimp-developer] Ctrl-clicking your way to a new layer mask

@C R > The patch only adds a way to add the same options that already exist for adding layer masks but using the mouse/keyboard to make sure you can do so quickly. So far i think don't the powers that be will be adding it in as they seem adverse to the idea so you'll have to compile it in yourself. I'll keep the ideas in mind if i have more time to revisit this for some lonely rainy weekend :)

As always clicking on the image with either key combination will add or remove the mask for that layer.

Sounds cool! Recommend this:

1. If there is a selection active in the layer, automatically add a layer mask with the selected area white, and the rest black.

2. If there is no selection active, make the mask layer black

3. If everything in the layer is selected make the mask layer white

This is based on the unifying idea that what you have selected is what you want to make a mask out of, which is nearly always the case, and will save having to choose it out of the layer menu over and over... and over again. :) Note that this is also how quick-mask works, and is why it's set up this way.

Nice work, and I look forward to using the addition!
