Ctrl-Q works though. Ctrl-Q (and Ctrl-W and some others) are standard
for the Macintosh, and acceptable IMHO.

I haven't had that problem, but it would be nice if they could be
disabled, I suppose.

I'm sure a reasonable new default menurc would be accepted for GIMP.

I'm sure assistance in redesign would be greatly appreciated. Mocking
up sane designs would be extremely helpful.

You can say it's not a troll all you like, but giving point-blank
demands (without any corresponding offer of aid), mixing arbitrary
judgement calls (Quit is unacceptable? Says who? Bowie J. Poag?) in
with reasonable suggestions, swearing, and generally being an ass, may
cause the reader to think otherwise.
