It would be interesting to know if this actually gives a noticeable

some testing. Please try to do gradient blends (w/o adaptive
supersampling!) on large images. Changing the number of processors in
the preferences dialog allows you to switch between using the thread
pool and the single-threaded code.

Hm, there's still no idea floating around how to benchmark. I'd rather have some microbenchmark that delivers reproducible results than only being able to say "hey, it feels faster"...

It think this writing some GIMPbench would be a nice
volunteer job and hey, if you do it, you'll get to choose
the benchmark methods and all the fame... ;)
