So you have obviously not even taken the time to look at the code before
you started to write your mostly pointless accusations. Someone told you
that MVC design is the solution for everything and now you are spreading
the word? Do you even know what you are talking about? I don't think so.

Such an architecture is already in place (as you would know if you had
taken the time to look at the code). The point is just that about 70% of
the code is UI code (and a lot of that code uses model-view-controller
concepts, yeah). So, if you are willing to rewrite those 70% then you
can build a different UI on top of the GIMP core.
