If I am not mistaken (correct me if I am wrong), there are two
features involved that have been removed: (1) moving a selection and
(2) DnD into an existing image (from Tracker or another ShowImage

As you point out, feature (1) may have a somewhat limited application,
but not as limited as you would think: the thing is, the image
background is not always the desktop, and there are times when you
could use it to clean up the inside of an application, where the
background is mostly flat (that video was just a quick example).
Feature (2) can be very useful in many use cases.

Overall, there are more situations than you would think where these
two features combined with the use of DnD to save (with optional
interactive access to the data translators) provide an efficient
workflow for quick and dirty edits for screenshot cleanups/mockups.

I will honor you with my reply then. Those of us who were not at BG
could have not known there was a consensus, and since Axel solicited
feedback on his thread, I just chipped in (like a few other people

The other provocative remarks, I will just ignore them for the sake of civility.
