"Bring out The Gimp...."
How many people do you really think have seen that movie? For example, English is my native language, and I've never heard this movie reference until it was brought up repeatedly on this mailing list -- this is the third thread I have encountered so far in which one or two people say 'this is icky and bad' and most of the others either express that they don't care or that they've never heard of such a way of using the word gimp; I still have never seen or heard a reference in real life to Pulp Fiction or 'gimp'. I think that a name change *could* attract some sorely needed developers, and users, too. If a movie reference is the reason you would like it changed.. I think your perception is lacking. In my case, I just find 'gimp' to be bland -- it's no fun to pronounce, it doesn't bring an image immediately to mind, it's non-obvious what it does, and it is not engaging (sillily or otherwise); on all these metrics I-Mage is superior.)
