Let's take an example. If in an image there are there is a toolbar at
the top of it and some icons in a panel at the bottom. In Photoshop, one
would have one layer for each tool in the toolbar and then group them
to form a toolbar. Similarly, one would have one layer for each icon
and then group them to form the panel. The benefit is, one can say
move the whole toolbar or the panel easily.
In Gimp, it seems that one have to link the layers for the toolbar
in order to move it and then unlink them all and then link the
layers for the panel. Is this quite troublesome? There is a better
