I suggested Quick Mask to Victor because he mentioned he wanted to
"see" the layer mask and image at the same time because, IIRC, I
*did* use Quick Mask (at least two years ago!) to create a very
accurate masking effect because I wanted accuracy and could see the
image while masking at the same time. I have started using Gimp after
a long time and I recall now that Quick Mask has nothing to do with
the Layer Mask. It just didn't occur to me when I replied to Victor.
