I agree: from a translator point of view I would find useful the capability of launching two GIMP instances with different locales (from two terminals with a properly set LANG environment variable) > (2) What should happen if gimp is already runnning and gimp is launched > again but with no files or URIs on the command-line?

Does that make sense? Yes. Would this behaviour cope also with an instance running in a workspace not currently displayed ? > (3) Should gimp-remote still be built and installed even if the d-bus > functionality is built into the gimp exectuable?
