In my not so humble opinion there is little to no point making a
lighter version of GIMP for mobile devices. Simply put, desktop and
mobile platforms rely on too different types of interaction with
users. You can't strip stuff from GIMP and make a cool image editor
for mobile. The further you go, the more you understand that you need
tools that work differently and UI that is completely different. And
that kinda kills the whole idea of "lighter GIMP".
