What questions do you think might be good to ask in a survey, if the goal
is to more efficiently and effectively accommodate various work flows on
various display screens? Hopefully without accidentally throwing out what
currently works well for at least some users (maybe the users least likely
to subscribe to a mailing list about the GIMP UI are the users who like the
current UI).

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