Pie menus are used in The Sims and Maya.  They work well for some
applications (IMO), especially where there is frequent menu navigation,
and I wouldn't mind seeing them as an option within the GIMP.  But as
already pointed out, the familiar list is also a good approach for those
learning the features.  A toggleable switch would be nice.
