Yes, this is why I suggested that this behavior should be the default
one for the Move tool. However, I understand that some people might
want to be able to move a whole layer even if a selection exists,
which is why I suggested to allow this to be toggled.
As a side note, it would be nice if the rectangle and ellipse
selection tools (not the base rectangle tool) would take Alt into
account before the selection is confirmed and behave as if the
selection had been confirmed: Alt = move selection mask, Alt+Ctrl =
move selected pixels, Alt+Shift = copy selected pixels. It should
not be necessary to press Enter before being able to move it.
