I don't think that discoverability is about newbies vs. professionals.

I am assuming you mean 'image editing newbies' and 'image editing professionals'.

By 'newbie' I mean new to the GIMP interface. By 'faithful user', I meant someone that knows GIMP and what it is capable of. As I said, I have concluded, based on previous discussions, that GIMP is not aimed towards newbies. Thus, the 'indiscoverability for GIMP newbies'-argument falls.

Uh, please back that up.

Refer to my reply to Alexandre:

Why it makes a difference if you have to use Shift many times?

Well, let's say it takes 0.3 secs longer to Shift click than just to click, you save 0.3 secs for one click, but 30 seconds if you do 100 clicks.

I probably misunderstood the 'why' though...
