With all due respect and admiration to the GIMP developers, I do believe
that the inability to at least rename a file from the camera's default of
dsc00405 to something meaningful is a serious impediment to convenient use
of the GIMP.
Once I have made some color adjustments, and maybe some cropping, etc., I
will decide whether I want to keep the photo or whether it is not worth
keeping.  It's a real inconvenience to have to go into Konqueror (e.g .) to
do the simple task of renaming it.

I love the GIMP, I admire the GIMP community immensely, and am reluctant to
find a fault -- but I do believe
that would be a worthwhile improvement.

I agree and have a similar work-flow.  I shoot raw and convert with
ufraw in batch (or sometimes bibblepro) with settings based of averages
from previous experiences.  Then I open with gqview and cull and also
look for particular shots that would have been better converted with
individual attention.  I re-convert the individuals, then go thru them
all in gqview, editing with gimp-remote when and where necessary.

I cannot remember ever looking for a delete function in gimp.
