Display size of selection area in pixels

I'd like to see a UI element that displays both absolute and
relative positioning of a selection box.

For example, when I draw a rectangle selection box, I should be able to see the height and width of the box itself in addition to the absolute positioning of the corners within the overall canvas.

Paint.NET displays this information in the status bar (which isn't in Pinta). Seashore.app displays a "DeltaX/DeltaY". Gimp displays it in
the status bar during select and in the Rectangle Select tool window.

This feature is great for people that do front-end web development that need to splice mockups or check on positioning and size of CSS sprite elements.
