API allows it, there will be someone making a plugin to change the UI).
The idea of being able to reorder the tool options for a given tool to
suit one's personal workflow, that makes a lot of sense. Would this be
incredibly difficult to program?
Tools and tool options should facilitate rather than impede the flow of
work, and GIMP is used by a very diverse group of people for very
diverse workflows. So a fixed order that makes everyone happy is maybe
not even possible.
Americo would find a particular order convenient for painting, and I
suspect his suggeted order makes sense for a lot of other people who use
GIMP for painting.
Speaking as a photographer, for the dodge/burn tool I'd really like to
put the options that are currently at the very bottom, instead at the
Other examples from other tools and workflows would be easy to find.
