I really enjoyed the talks[1] you gave at LGM 2009 (or I should say  
the videos of them as I didn't attend). The kinematics talk[2] was  
quite intriguing and I hope to see the concept incorporated into GIMP  
sometime in the future.

You are probably already familiar with it, but your usability lecture  
reminded of the UI Facades project  
(http://insitu.lri.fr/metisse/facades) which permits runtime  
rearrangement of GTK widgets and provides an extremely flexible  
framework for user adaptable interfaces. Some of their concepts might  
be of interest to your project.

Thanks for all of your efforts.
