Loosing access to a menu may be acceptable to you, but I think it is
in no way acceptable for a program that wants to reach a larger audience.
I see the bugreports coming in daily. Additionally I don't know how the
color-selector should fit into a one-column layout.
In other word: unacceptable for the masses, but you may always change the
2 to a 1 in the spinbutton creator for your own personal pleasure.
Alternatively we can of course merge all menus into one GIMP menu...
