At best, these inputs belong in the tool options. At worst, they're internal
details exposed in the interface, and should more or less be invisible.
Eliminating these dialogs, and the crop tool's pop-up, are high priorities for
2.4 as far as I am concerned. Kevin, you might like them, but as someone who
regularly gives tutorials in the GIMP to people, and one of the most common
tasks is reframing or rotating a bad photo, these dialogs are completely
confusing, and most people don't want them.
