I agree - identity is important! ... isn't Wilber the GIMP's
"identity"? I think Wilber is very cute and easy to recognize, and so
should show up in the gimp wherever possible.

Right now I think Wilber only shows up in the "Tip of the day" box.  I
think he should be on the splash screen, on the about page, and
perhaps even in the help files. If the help files will be based on
GUM, which I imagine is a very structured document, maybe we could
have special Wilber icons wherever there is a "warning" or "note" or

Hey, we could even have a Wilber "agent" like the M$ Word Paperclip.

Please shoot me now.
