Valid vs. prudent is the question.
Do more people use it to combine layers or open a bunch of images?
When the New Image window is the only one around (for the Utility window -
reason given), how does one easily open two images?
I have used the Gimp for a long time, and never have I thought "Hey, I want a
layer from another image, let me drag it onto the window...". If I wanted to
do that, perhaps dragging to the Layer box/window would be a more obvious
choice? Dragging two images to the "Image Window" should treat them like two
separate "Images". Just seems logical. I asked a bunch of people in my
graphics dept, and they agreed.
