I must say I was impressed that you picked up on the GIMP UI issue, I was drawn into that debate, one of the more intereting spin offs was how a GIMP developer then publicly wailed because somebody released a usable GIMP UI in the form of GimpShop - he was attacked for not 'adding his thoughts to the on-going GIMP efforts to improve the UI'.
It is fun. Rather than see their work as being taken and improven upon, they see it as their 'legacy' and importance diminishing within their project. I wish I had the links to the debacle, perhaps it is linked on the gimpshop site, beware the highest pagerank site for gimpshop was (at last check) some weird affiliation site.
