And done already, years ago there were some templates that people just
copied and used for things like CD covers (instead of waiting for
dialog to do something, just keep empty files ready to use like blank
paper that can be cloned). But the point is that the user requested
it, and was clearly visible, then it makes sense. "My paintbrush fails
around the edges" does not so much, IMO. Following the XCF idea, edges
as guides could be saved in it and show a nice hint.
