Maybe I am misinformed... I have a different impression, but since there is
no central steering agency for gimp, we will never know ;)

I talked quite a bit about that with Kalle Dalheimer about "kimp". You
(rightly) remember that the "official" plan is to seperate the gimp ui
from the core.

The KDE people would not at all be opposed to code their own gui.

The reason for their hack (no one says kgimp was a reasonable design) was
that they lack the developer power to help with the core/ui seperation.

We haven't ever seen a bad comment about kde here or on #gimp, for sure ;)
The problem with this is that many people on the kde lists are 3133t3-type
people, unlike with gnome (simply because kde is the perceived leader,
which is of course bound to change soon ;)

That would enable a _sensible_ kde frontend, and most probably a cool perl
interface for web-servers and the like ;)

Regardless of what happens, I do not feel like a gnome developer at all, I
don't even use gnome (much because of the same reasons I do not use kde).

I am sure I am not the only one who feels more-or-less strongly that gimp
!= gnome.

Nick: view it as a sign of quality... we are independent!

Unfortunately, it's more like "1.2 fixing" :(
