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.

the project should be on the user interface.
