Peter,

I'm glad you've become the ambassador for this.  Your
description of a loupe is basically what I was
proposing in my original bugzilla proposal #409802 (
http://bugzilla.gnome.org/show_bug.cgi?id=409802 ). 
Rather than add another proposal, why not just flesh
out the details of your vision on that bug report?

I hope enough others agree that this will dramatically
change the way work is done in GIMP to make this a
reality.

..... Mark
