Hi Branko,

Thanks for your reply.

While I love the flexibility the separate windows of the GIMP software
provide.  A friend and I think it would be very useful to have a "single
window" styled layout (as well as the present flexible window position
interface), where all GIMP child windows are within a core GIMP window.
I think this is called MDI (Multiple Document Interface).  This style
of interface is common in proprietary gfx software we have used.

Actually, it is called Window in Window MDI, or WiW. It is mainly used on the Microsoft Windows platform, which, despite it's name, is rather limited in regard to handling application windows.

My friend and I are thinking Â50 (UKP) each donation so far (I know not
much, but we don't have a lot to spare.. if others would donate it could
be increased).  If there is support for this idea, I could email the
gimp-users list and ask if others would like to donate for this feature.

I wonder if there are any programmers (way 2 below) who would like some
donated money to work on this style of window layout..?

You might want to have a look at XNest, or the following GIMP plug-in if you are working on Win32: http://registry.gimp.org/plugin?id=3892
I don't know if there is an equivalent for Mac OS X, though.
