Once a selection is made it is treated internally as raster data -
that means it is impossible to, say, increase an elliptical selection
radius after it is ready (but people are working out a way tot hat
with rectangular selections).
But all transform tools (move, scale, rotate, perspective, etc...)
have mmodes to operate on the selection. Just select one of the
transform tools, and on the tool options dialog, pick the "work on
selection" (second icon on the top of the dialog).
With most tools, the "work on selection" mode can also be achieved by
holding ALT while clicking - but "ALT + click" is normally used by
Window Managers, so the combination often doesn't work.
