Yah, it's an area I have little expertise on. Good to see
some knowledge appearing here. (-:

Ah, yes.

One overlay I'd like to see appear is *not* a PS clone, it's
an overlay that makes GIMP instantly useful to newbies, so
runs things in modes and fashions they expect.

This would have to be a separate project of sorts, with its own
lists and stuff else it would cause list flooding to pale
today's events into total insignificance.

I'd like to see it done in a sort of minimalist fashion,
modifying as little as possible to meet the expectations of
its anticipated user-base.

I'll probably get slandered for suggesting this, but... nothing
ventured, nothing pained (or something like that). How about
calling it "Wilbur" out & out, as a way of signifying a cute &
cuddly GIMP?

Cheers; Leon
