That would be fantastic; thank you! I think it would make sense for the cut
regions to be transparent. Personally, when I work, I give all layers an alpha
channel and have a separate layer for just the background color, so that layer
wouldn't even be linked with the others when cutting or copying, and it would
show through anyway.

I should really look into learning script-fu. I'm sure it would be helpful.
