we spent some more thoughts on this and discussed the topic on #gimp.
Let me present the current plan and ask you for comments. I'd like to
get it right this time since we should try to avoid further string
changes before 2.2.0...
So the plan is to keep the Scale Image dialog as is and to add a new
dialog called "Print Size" which will allow to change the image
resolution (and nothing else). It should offer two entries to specify
the print size in physical units and two entries to specify the print
resolution (linked with a chain-button since you will usually want to
change both values at the same time).
Does that make any sense? Is "Print Size" a good name for the dialog
and it's menu entry?
