Hi Phillip,

The two major use cases when this would be a more efficient interface is
for us GIMPers who already know what functionality they want and don't
need to go three levels deep, but also for novice users for who it will
perhaps be easier to search for 'replace color' instead of browsing
through the menu tree. If filters and functions have some additional
metadata, providing for example name of the same functionality in
competing graphic packages, things would become easier to discover for

Additionally this interface would allow to provide not only a brief name
of the function, but also a small graphic demonstrating the function
where applicable. I envisioned using a tile-based interface for this not
unlike the beagle-search tool* but never gotten to mock things up. Feel
like speccing things up? ;)

This would be a nice summer of code project for next year.
