I use gimp for manipulating images for my software projects.

I am used to working in a coordinate system where 0,0 is at the bottom left of the screen.

Gimp uses 0,0 as the top left; Is there a setting in Gimp where I can change this, so when I mouse over an image, for example, the coordinate displayed is relative to the bottom left?
