as far as filters are concerned, I'd strongly, and that means __strongly__, 
suggest you to use keyboard shrotcuts to get to your filters. 
Yes,  stopping ytour work to configure keyboard shortcuts is a major pita, and 
that is why most people donṫ do it in any software, even knowing it is 
possible. However, GIMP has setup a unique feature that was once available to 
all GTK+ applications: 
dynamic keyboard shortcuts. 
Just enable these once in preferences, and you will never again have to selct 
a single filter in the thrid menu level more than once. The tooltip on the 
edit->preferences->interface option that enable these shortcuts is self 

As for layer combination modes...Martin, is there any clean way of allowiyng 
setting keyboard shortcuts to layer combiantion modes? That ḋ be a nice 
feature to have.
