Are you suggesting that relicensing babl would somehow magically right
all wrongs? :) How?

I *think* Bill N might think that forking babl would mean that GIMP development could switch to a "release early and often" approach to future development. I think that's the difference between OpenOffice and LibreOffice that he's pointed to.

People who don't make a habit of reading the babl/GEGL/GIMP git logs on a regular basis might not realize what a huge amount of coding effort has gone into the conversion to a geglified GIMP. It's not a matter of incremental improvements.
