+1.  Having messed around with GIMP on my n900, it would be a
nightmare to redesign for a touch interface.  Then there's having to
pull in GTK or replace it, battery issues, etc - a long list of
non-fun :)

Now a bare-bones editor based on GEGL/BABL might be interesting.

I'm surprised there's not a basic editor for android already
available.  I'm still on maemo, so I wouldn't know though ;)
