3D view could be a solution for powerfull PC, not for "too big image
on too little ram".
Would it be possible to use one program with many UIs? Let's say i
start GIMP and can switch between single window mode, multiple window
mode. Within each of this mode there could be next switch to see
content in "normal structure" or 3D view.
It reminds ideas like 3D goopher or Compiz - nice shiny toy to hang
computer. Gimp is image editing software - it operate on files that
need lot of ram. All this 3D features would just add another demands
for hardware. At least leave an option to disable them.
Otherwise we might end up with insane paradox: Apple workstation and
Photoshop CS 666 will be cheaper option than hardware capable of
running Gimp 6.66
I don't want to offend anyone - just trying to remind You, that every
feature has its cost - no matter whether we count it in hardware
resources or in money. If You manage to create additional alternative
UI for Gimp - great, if You make "normal" Gimp more expensive just to
get few visible clues - this is controversial.
