It would be interesting to know if this actually gives a noticeable speedup on SMP systems. Would be nice if one of you could give this 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... ;)
