I'm still thinking GIMP could benefit from Eclipse-style
"perspectives", where which dialogs are visible and which are hidden
are user-defined sets that can be switched between.  The user can then
define which dialogs are useful for certain commonly occurring tasks
and quickly switch between them.  It takes a little getting used to at
first, but once you understand the paradigm you never want to go back
to managing individual windows.
