One could argue though that the BMP loader in GIMP should use a layer
mask to represent the mask in the BMP file instead of using an alpha
channel for this. You would probably have discovered this more easily
then and it appears to be a better way to represent the BMP image
structure. So I think we should accept a patch that changed the BMP file
plug-in in this way.
