It could be a text entry that replaces the menu-bar triggered by a keyboard shortcut, similar to how you can switch from the path-bar to a location entry in the file-chooser. Or it could be a UI that overlays itself on the image. The current work on the text tool UI shows what's possible in this respect with newer versions of GTK+. Would be nice to get some input from Peter on this subject. With a little help from the guiguru, this could turn out to become a very useful change to the GIMP UI. >From a development point of view, it shouldn't be too difficult to implement the actual search in the menus and plug-ins. A main focus of the project should be on the user interface.
