This is the behaviour I expect from a paint app:
If there's a selection on the current layer, only the selected pixels in the
current layer should be transformed, rotated, scaled or sheared. This happens
within the layer. If the new pixels overlap untransformed pixels, they are
composed with the giving composite op and opacity.
If there's no selection, a transform on a layer should transform all pixels in
a layer, i.e., act as if the layer was completely selected. No new layer is
created. There is no composition, because the old layer data is completely
If a transform is applied to a image, all layers are transformed. The
selection is transformed, too: in the new situation, the layer that has a
selection active still has a selection, but the shape of the selection is
If a layer is moved, the selection moves with the layer (this is not
A transform never creates a new layer (expect perhaps temporarily and it
wouldn't be visible to the user).
