Yes, that is what I realized, and it would work for me.  However, I
think it's an artificial limitation and has two drawbacks:  First, it is
non-obvious, if not outright confusing; Second, formats that _do_
support layers (most notably Photoshop) will defeat this.

Dragging the layer to the toolbox works very well.  I highly recommend
making this a tip if it is not already.  It just seemed most intuitive
to me to have an export option available at the l&c menus.  This is
where I first looked and thus I would think that's the best place to put
it.  =)

It also seemed easy enough.  If you folks think not to do because of the
drag-n-drop feature, that's fine, but it should definately be a tip.
