But the Gradient Editor has been around pretty much forever, its window is just 
not loaded into the toolboxes by default.  Try double-clicking a gradient from 
the Gradients dialog (on its icon/preview, not its name), this should bring up 
the Gradient Editor.

Advance warning:  You can't edit the preset gradients (minor design flaw common 
to all GIMP resources, really), you have to hit the "Duplicate" button on a 
desired gradient before you go into editing mode.  Otherwise the editor will be 
in read-only mode.

I appreciate the responses, which led me to experimenting.  I don't seem to 
have the Gradient Editor.  I guess it's time to upgrade from gimp 2.6.  But 
even if I did have the Editor, I can see that it's beyond my level.  

Thanks all -- I'll keep playing with it.
