Yes, I knew that (both the "utility" setting and the image dialog).
What I meant was to polish those two features and make them work
correctly in every platform (afaik the "utility" setting seems to have
some problems in windows, for instance) so can make them available as
the default behavior.
When I asked Sven some time ago why the "utility" setting wasn't the
default behavior, he answered that it wasn't because it didn't worked
completely as intended.
I'm talking about trying to address some problems using the existing
resources as much as possible, as a realistic short-term solution. Many
people ask for a complete UI redesign, but I think that much can be
accomplished improving the existing.
I think that making this at least would move the UI some steps forward
and prepare the field for further changes in the future.
