My opinion is exactly opposite because this creates two full-width docks and 
is both illogical and and space wasting for first time users. Lets keep it in 
mind that this change would not mean anything for people who already have 
their setup.

In my opinion this layout(thin toolbox, one large dock) is preferable to first 
time users. It has familiarity. They wont feel lost when GIMP loads for the 
first time.

However, I do expect our UI tea to chip in  on this. :) After all it is 
entirely UI matter, and onr that can do a lot for the user experience without 
changing GIMP itself.
