Forgive me for the presumption but may I suggest something? instead of lowering
expectations in advance, perhaps you could do something else: use the publicity
as an opportunity for attracting new developers. If you do provide some vision
and a roadmap for the steps ahead, and tell the magazine about the edffort to
switch to GEGL (which should bring all sorts of goodies to GIMP) perhaps the
people reading the magazine (I assume the readership is skewed towards
programmers, this being a magazine about open source) will be inspired to join
the GIMP team and help.
