This applies to the final image strip design aswell.

I thing tabs/image bar should autohide and a have a tiny control you
can click to show /  hide it. It makes more sense with bar style

This is really missing. Firefox has close buttons on tabs. I think
gimp should have the same.

This is not an option by design. There are problems we can not be
solved sanely with multiple swm windows, so there can be just one swm
main window.

No, theres an image bar, with pretty much identical function.

I have problem with this attitude. Its not how open-source works. If
its stable, you release it and then keep adding design and features in
the next cycle. 2.8 has already taken too long. People who shoudn't be
building Gimp from git are doing it. Heaping on "does not match design
goals exactly" style roadblocks does more harm than helps. If it fills
the basic requirements and is stable, its not a release roadblock. Id
like to hear other developers opinions on this.

Firefox tabs have close buttons for some time. This is just something
gimp lacks at the moment.
