If you want to implement anti-erase as a layer mask, then
for antierase to be available, this layer mask (not shown to
user) has to be present all the time (if not, the
information needed for anti-erase would be lost).
But how this situation differs from separate alpha channel
-- except for storing the same data in a much more complex
way than necessary?
Or did I missed something?
