Actually, my problems begun in gedit - I was editing a python script,
and certainly, for people on GNU/Linux for the first time, EMACS
would not be a suitable option.
GIMPwise, Sven's suggestions are ok. I like more the idea of actually
unhiding the gimp profile directory. Because a separate interface to
save images that are to be saved as patterns or brushes, IMHO, would
only break things even more. A bookmark to the gimp profile would
also work. Of the things accessible through other interfaces, I
think there is little left to be done.
