Sorry, but I'll go off topic - don't have an answer to your gimp
question. I'm sure you know that 3.14 has little to do with the golden
mean, but 1.671 isn't right either. It is closer to 1.618. The
difference is important if you are going to do one of the continued
fraction type pictures that are so popular.
For an unusual application of the golden mean see my bathroom floor on
my web page.
