Check my new mockup, I've changed this. It's available at
http://www.zeitgeistmedia.net/gimp/gimpstreamline2.png .
You're right on this one, I would suggest to split the toolbox, upper
segment containing logical groups, e.g. paint tools, and on click, the
lower segment contains the corresponding tools, like brush, pen,
airbrush, ink and text. This would reduce mouse movement, as you
suggested, while still making it easier to find the tool you need.

Sorry, I didn't mean the color picker, but the color dialog. But I
thought about this, and this is not really necessary. I removed this
from the new mockup.

Very good. What about the mini - palette from my new mockup?
