Please correct me if I'm wrong, but that mockup basically aims to change 
the aspect of the dialog without adding any enhancement. The tool does 
exactly the same but the dialog looks like Photoshop's one.
The only improvement I see is the ability to see the actual influence of 
the overlap value on the color gradient, wich is cool, but I don't know 
if it's cool enough to change the whole dialog, that already works fine.
Maybe it would be better for future versions to redesign the dialog 
adding some real enhancements to the tool, like arbitrary 3-point 
gradient selection and/or a curve for tweaking. In that case, the use of 
a wheel is better than a linear scale because it matches better with the 
well known color wheel scheme.


p.s.: I support the idea that Campbell Barton suggested a couple of days 
ago. Maybe it would be better to create a new mailing list focused on 
functionality discussion. This would avoid the frequent conflict user 
requests vs. developers priorities and would bring some fresh ideas for 
the project.
I don't want to bug any developer with functionality requests if this 
list is only focused on coding, but I'd really like to have a place for 
discussing features and useability issues that are also very important 
for the overall  quality of Gimp.
