Is it a defect, or an intentional decision?

This sentence does not make any sense to me.  To make sense, one
should have a PRIOR definition of "the user interface parts of GIMP".
E.g., from what you write, It looks like foreground color is not in
"the user interface parts of GIMP".

So. is there such a definition?  Is it defined as "any setting outside
those related to save/restore-state Script-Fu API", or is there
anything else accessible from Script-Fu?
