A nice feature could be to automatically switch from x:y to y:x. This could
be done by detecting the first move and assigning the largest value of the
ratio to that direction.

For example, if user choose 3:2 ratio, and then first move cursor
horizontally during drag, the ratio will be 3:2. If user first move cursor
vertically, then ratio will be 2:3.

What a cool idea. I never thought of that. I sometimes don't know if an image would look better in portrait or landscape - this would make it very flexible to try both (one after the other). I also work through a batch of photos at 2:3 aspect ratio that I then need to crop down to 3.5:5 aspect ratio for my prints. This idea would make it very easy to set my aspect ratio, then invert it on the fly. I've taken the liberty of adding your suggestion to bug 156858 ( http://bugzilla.gnome.org/show_bug.cgi?id=156858 ) (which dups 169064, 153941, 337663, 338948 I think)
