Too small (except on a 30" single display. 5 LCD monitors is not a
situation in which I can reasonably imagine you would want to use
single-window mode; feel free to contradict me if you have experience
with this.)

There are no relevant GTK+ limitations. However I understand that with
the current GUI setup of GIMP, horizontal splits like
are easier to implement in terms of visual organization.

This is only true IMO if the source auto-scrolls as you clone.
Otherwise, especially when you need to be reasonably precise, you may
need a relatively large display (for example, 150x150 area @ 300% zoom
= 450x450)
