I had exactly the same idea when I read the bug report.  This
has several advantages:
- you can position the 2nd view wherever you want so that it does
  not obstruct your work area;
- you can still see everything in the main view, including the
  exact shape and proportions of the brush;
- you can set the zoom level separately for the main view and for
  the zoomed-in view;
- you can also set the size of the zoomed-in view by just resizing
  the window instead of having to deal with preferences, etc.
- the zoomed-in view can support all other view options such as
  hiding or showing selections, guides and other stuff
  independently from the main view;
- support for multiple views is already there, the main thing
  missing is an option to track the pointer when it is in another
- geeks can have more than one zoomed-in view if they want to. ;-)
