For the record,

GNOME also uses the icon, both in alt-tab view and in the taskbar
that some people claim doesn't exist, or is it a sidebar? Anyway,
the thing that appears in overview mode.

Some people seem to understand opposite things from what you are saying. Are you saying GNOME uses the Wilber icon, or that it uses the thumbnail in place of an icon? Because I also use GNOME 3 (3.16.2) and I never saw any thumbnail-icons of GIMP, whether in alt-tab or in the dock in the overview.

Well… isn't the discussion you are "missing" exactly what we are
right now?
Aren't we gathering the various situations in the various
with various users using one or the other window mode right now?…

Ok, I just tested XFCE
(http://gui.gimp.org/index.php/Image:Xfce-alt-tab-gimp.jpg). It
seems the only OS/desktop tested until now with a concept of taskbar
using the generated thumbnail-icons (well Windows too according to
bug report, though the person under Windows 7 who tested for me this
morning and sent me my screenshot had no thumbnail in the taskbar, so
I'm a little lost here).
The alt-tab also uses it, which is redundant with XFCE own
in alt-tab.

So yes the taskbar in XFCE (and Win?) seems one of the only case up
now where the thumbnail seems useful.
