OK, so following Alexia's suggestion, I am going to plan on selecting ahead
of time the rectangle I want my text to paste into. The upper left corner
of this selection will then be the upper left corner that I want to paste my
png to. How do I do that? I thought about creating a layer the same size
as the selection rectangle and pasting to (0,0) on that layer. I see in the
pdb how to create a layer with a certain width and height, but I don't see
how to specify the offset. And I don't see how to paste to a specific set
of coordinates. Can this be done? If I use pdb.gimp_edit_paste_as_new, can
I get the coordinates of the pasted selection and then move the floating
selection before anchoring? What is the right approach?
