with GIMP becoming a non-destructive editor at heart, i think
it's natural to expect cropping to work non-destructively, too.
Then it's more like selecting a frame for an (conceptually)
infite-sized image. So the crop tool could be superseded
by some "image size selection" tool in future.
I hope i'm right that GEGL already cares for the implied memory issues.
If that's true, the only reason to discard the invisible
layer information is to reduce file size (on demand).
