Yes, and if you ever work on a laptop screen (or 15" monitor) you really
dont want to have any extra space used by the toolbox.. Dialogs are always
too big :)

Actually Gtk should be scalable so you could stretch the dialogs smaller
with all the contents shrinking :)

What I usually do with website work, I also take a screenshot of the site,
and add a new layer and design the whole thing over the screenshot, in
place. Then I just flatten the image and cut the thing in pieces. Very handy
and useful.

But this is stuff for the gimp-user list I guess..  :)
