Hi Joe

Suggesting a new feature without specifying how the algorithm behind it
work is pointless because how could the feature then be implemented?
There are way too many other things to use the sparse GIMP developer
resources for than to research details of other peoples feature requests.

Note the difference between not listening to users and rejecting
incomplete feature requests. We appreciate that you think GIMP is worth
spending some on to help improving, but please don't take it personal if
some of your suggestions are considered incomplete.

It would be very appreciated if you took the time to research exactly
how this algorithm is supposed to work.
