So should we have these 2 concepts?
If we have multi-selection, do you have a concept of "main selected
layer", which is the one where drawing occurs? Is it then the first of
the last selected layer?
Actually you end up with three selection concepts:
* selection for painting (single selection)
* selection for geometric transform (actually faked as 'links') (even
if links also apply to non-layer things, such as paths and channels)
* selection for operations/management (drag/drop in the Layers list,
possibly drag/drop to another image, set visibility, mode, opacity,
alpha/pixel lock, links, add alpha channel... , remove text
In addition to this you have to consider how scripts can use this. Most
currently trigger on the link or visible flags so having a third flag
could be good.
PS: should not the mail from this list have a properly tagged subject
line [Gimp-gui-list] like its two siblings?
