Sorry for interruption...

Speaking of the cars... Designers made different types of cars, but 
they've never broken basic principles we all got used to.

Following your analogy: We have serious parking place issues. Currently 
GIMP takes four parking places by default.

I like this kind of interface GIMP uses. I agree that one window per 
image is great thing when you get used to it. My only objection is that 
registering four of them clutters taskbars. Just for the record, I know 
about TAB key and Keep on top settings. :)
