Actually, it'd be nice if Gimp could pick up some of the properties of PS's erase 
background tool.

Adding 'Tolerance' to 'color to alpha' would be good start; and maybe that's all 
that's really necessary for this function. 

How does everybody else remove backgrounds?

The other approaches I take are:
1. decomposing the image and a making mask from the layer with the best separation
2. using the path tool to break out a region and (once again) make a mask

Any techniques I'm missing?
