you might want to have a look at
http://sven.gimp.org/misc/gimp-curves.png which is a screenshot of the
Curves widget from SVN trunk. As you can see we already incorporated
some of your suggestions. And of course the widget benefits a lot from
being drawn with Cairo...
All this is still open for discussion and will probably undergo further
changes. Your input is appreciated.
