I wrote a Script-fu which performs something similar: it converts the
image contents of the current selection into the selection. The
selection created only includes the pre-existing selection, so perform a
"Select None" or "Select All" before executing the command if you wish
the entire layer to be converted into a selection. (Note: the command
also works with layermasks and channels.)
The function appears on the "Select" menu as "From Drawable".
