The layers (dockable) dialog should never be hidden, every GIMP user guide
says that. Thus for anybody following this idea, the real question is "If I
want to hide a layer, I go to the layers dialog." Otherwise, it would be
necessary to copy in the layers menu all the functionalities of the layers
dialog, which means a lot.

Is this argument so strange?
