That's the bane of UI developers... everybody has an opinion, so for one person who does the work, fifty others feel entitled to criticize.Just to add one more link to this long thread, do you remember when the Toolbox menus disappeared? How many people whined or screamed because this change ruined their way to use GIMP? How many people spoke about MY workflow, MY habits, MY opinion about this stupid change, and threatened to stick to version 2.4, to fork to a more sensible version, to give up and use something else, to develop their own GNU image processing program? How many people explained that GIMP developer were stupid, ignorant, arrogant, scornful, etc. (I can't find my thesaurus to add more synonyms)? And now, how many people remember the Toolbox menus?
Contrast to how many people are likely to have a look at the Cage tool code(*) and make helpful suggestions
(*) only taken as a potential example, nothing implied, I didn't read the code :)
