See everything you pointed out is exactly why I love GIMP.  GIMP enables
you to make your own workflow.  You want multi window mode go for it, no?
single window is there two. want the tool box on the right? want dialogs on
top of each other, beside each other, blow or beside the toolbox?  don't
like the tools that are showing by default or the order it is in? change it
to fit your needs.

You would be horrified to work in my environment as im am sure I would in
yours.  This feature would make my workflow way better and the best part is
you don't have to use grouped tools if you don't want to.  I have my
suggestions on default groups based upon how I would set it up if this
feature were to be implemented if the community were to like the default.
Obviously there are those who do not so I think it would be best not to set
default groups.

I am fine with that.  But let me modify my toolbox the way I want it. I am
going to do that anyway and this would make my workflow even better for me.

Jesus is my Lord and Savior. Praise be unto God for giving us a way to live
with him.
