Well, that's a bit like complaining that your text editor lacks 
formatting tools because you want to use it as a word processor. The 
GIMP's author's certainly didn't set out to make it the ideal image 
viewing software and you shouldn't complain if it doesn't do a job it 
wasn't designed to do.

Having said that, I am surprised that I can't find a way of to select 
my choice of default tool on start up.
