Another idea is to just apply the current operation on the
x+Tx*i,y+Tx*i position too, and skip the tiled view. This might be
easier. Then you can start with a tile filter and then work with just
"tiled operation". This was how old'n'good DeluxePaint solved it
(anyone remember that program?). This is a lazy and rather
unprofessional solution, but it might just work.

I didn't know about the transform, but that only simplifies my
routine, it still isn't perfect. ;)

Another question, maybe stupid, why doesn't the tile filter tile all
layers, like you would expect?
