On the other hand, tiles really help with undo/redo and memory management. The
thing is to hide them as well as possible. Krita used to have a non-tiled
image buffer, and it didn't pan out. When looking at other raster apps, it's
pretty clear that the Gimp uses tiles, and I have a strong suspicion that
Photoshop does so, too. It's just a matter of finding a formula that allows
efficient pixel-messing while keeping the tiles.

Not all tools -- but when you have a tool that basically composes a brush
image/mask with the existing layer, using a temporary layer has the advantage
of being able to be bitBlted using all the existing composite ops. The Gimp
uses temporary layers, but can paint directly onto the layer as well. But
most tools use temporary layers, also because they appear to make it easier
to do subpixel positioning.

I will -- thanks!
