Seems to me that probably most people will use at most a couple of the
layer modes in normal use, so maybe putting the top 7 on the menu and
having a "more modes" submenu is a possibility.
If gimp starts to have adjustment layers, that can e.g. apply a filter,
or user-defined painting modes, or if the ilst of built-in modes got
longer, the menu approach would probably become unworkable, and we'd
need a drawing mode pallette or something.
But it seems to me it's worth living with it as it is for a while,
until the hot goat love (GEGL) has been explored a little more.
