Having access to them can be useful - after all, they are already available,
so you could use them to build a thumbnail a gallery. But for this example,
it would be more convenient to have this as a script or a "Open thumbnail
for this image" entry in the menus.

Accessing hidden directories or moving the location of some from .gimp can
get more interesting on other platforms - for example, .gimp on Win32 is not
hidden, but hard to get to for the ordinary user (going one directory up
from "My Documents" doesn't get you to $HOME).
