Be creative: duplicate image, merge all visibible layers, paste back
the result and discard the temp image. Use shortcuts and DnD and you
get the result fast. It can be scripted too.

There is a filter all layers already, provided by perl-fu. But filter
all layers does not have to output the same than filter the result.
