So to answer your question (albeit in a statistically insignificant way), no-one wants the patch. The problem is that you have a definition of what constitutes the peer-group of an application that no-one else seems to agree with. But since your argument is predicated on your definition, you're not going to make any headway. And I'm inclined to agree that the peer-group of an application is those applications likely to be found in the same environment. The proportion of use-time spend adjusting to a new application will (in most cases I hope) be a fraction of the total use-time of that application. So why configure an application in order to improve that small period? I'm not sure that many people use both PS and gimp. The scale of the applications and UIs means that most people will be using one or the other. However, it's likely that users of gimp will also be users of gedit (substitute any other OSS app here). gimp's immediate peer-group would be those non-overlapping but related applications (blender, inkscape), followed by other unrelated applications likely to be found in the same working environment. It's not going to be other applications that fulfill more or less the same niche. My 2c (as a regular and long-term reader of this group, but a non-contributing one).
