I'm looking forward to see the results. Now is a really good time for
discussing usability issues. We are willing to do quite some changes
to the user interface for GIMP 2.2.

Yes, the Wiki is probably a good place to develop some proposals. But
it's also important to bring the results back to the mailing list from
time to time. And perhaps also bring up problems that show up while
working on the Wiki.

It would be great to have at least the Wiki -> XML conversion
available so that the proposed menu layout can be played with. IIRC,
Bolsh said he wanted to give it a try but he he also said that he
won't get around to it during the next weeks. Perhaps someone else
wants to give this a try earlier? It would really be nice to have.

We will be doing a 2.1.0 release in a couple of days to make it easier
for people to play with the new stuff.
