I always liked the way that the original two authors were kept as the
authors.  It made me like the app this much more.

I admit, it is a mooshey feeling of rightness.  Look at how everything
got mixed up in some of the current eh, models.  Like I was taught about
adam and eve; later someone digs up lilith.  I would hate for this to
happen with gimp culture.

eh lennon and mccartney are another good example.  they went with an
alphabetic listing of their names, now paul is on his own to say what he
did the most work on and not.  craziness.
