There was recent discussion about a script user who wanted to
do subsequent modifications, but was faced with the tricky
prospect of making an intricate mask; advise to the user was
"edit the script to eliminate final flattening step." This should
reduce the liklihood of that.

Literally "The Gimp" provides a l/c ascender, "h" a descender, "p"
and capital letters "T,G" so something is touching on the cap height,
ascender, and descender horizontals. That, I think, would be a good
set of visual cues for planning layouts.
