well, we at the UI team are trying to tell the development team that
over in user-space there is a big perceived difference channels and
and I can't believe that proposing an alignment of GIMP UI with
the realities of users expectations meets such a dogged resistance.
you describe to me some of the high-end usage of channels which is cool
to know, but it relies in no way on the selections also being parked
there. there is a free flow of pixel data possible between any layer
mask and selection, so I would not know why that could also not have
obvious means (like, copy and paste) in and out of channels.
