hopefully this doesn't compromise your health, but an object picker has
already been proposed (which is my fault) , and for good reason:
If you take non-destructive editing serious, you inevitably end up with a finer
granularity of adjustability than with the current scheme -- hence objects .
This is not my fault, but GEGL's. Should also produce a little relief for those
poor little abused layers ;-)
