Wrong. GIMP is a package for whatever the *USER* decides it is going
to use GIMP for. And an absence of a convenient non-destructive tool
is a major misfeature.
The first thing I do when entering GIMP is switching to the eyepicker
(or is is dropper? ;-) tool. But it is not non-destructive enough;
and it is useless as a default tool.
For me, a possibility to have a "Panning" tool as the default would
make my life much more useful (one which behaves as mid-mouse-drag).
A few mouses around have a middle button. And SPACE-panning is
useless if the focus is not on the picture window...
Hope this helps,
