This is a different issue from what was discussed here. You can toggle
between moving layers, selection masks or paths by using the modifiers:
Ctrl or Alt (this will soon be indicated in the status bar). I don't
think that this behavior should be changed.
This proposal was about a different thing, which is that the Move tool
should be able to move the selected pixels, not just whole layers or
selection masks (masks, not contents) or paths. And it should do that
by default like the other transform tools (see also Bill's message).
