I don't think this needs much further discussion. We already have plans
for adding a GimpPlugInDialog widget and porting the plug-ins to it.
Such a dialog would provide a framework for loading and storing plug-in
settings or at least for changing the defaults. It could also take care
of session management such as setting the window size.

IIRC, the dialog currently takes the unit from the image that is being
edited. This seems to make some sense to me and it might be difficult to
decide when it makes sense to use percent instead. Or perhaps percent
would even be a better default? We should ask some users.

IIRC, the Rotate tool shows a preview of the rotation by default. If it
shows only the outline for you, then you probably changed the default
rotate tool settings.
