   Last thingy, about professional use of Gimp, isn't this a bit of a
   chicken-and-egg thing? I can't imagine anyone using a program that
   doesn't do CMYK, serious halftoning and easy font work (with the
   added note that my X server crashes regularly on TrueType fonts
   rendered larger than 100 px or so) for professional print
   graphics. Having worked together with those professionals quite a
   bit lately I think Gimp needs to be quite a bit better still.

I can imagine professional use of a program without any of these
things these days (the font stuff is most likely to be an issue).  A
lot of printers that get professional use have Mac/Windows drivers
that take exclusively RGB data.  A more serious issue is the lack of
color matching, so that there's no guarantee that what shows on the
screen will match what's on the page.
