completely stupid fashion technically. He forked the code.

So, he forked the code. You think he's stupid. And this forum does not want to help Gimpshop users. Based on those comments I thought I would go back and reread this section on Forkability[1] and this section on Forks[2] in "Producing Open Source Software"[3]. Would you consider Gimpshop a successful fork?
