yep. project starters are not seasoned GIMP developers, and they failed to 
get original devs in new team. now, GIMP codebase is huge, and to start 
even understand it one have to invest *years* of fulltime work. talking 
about any rewrites on this stage is ridiculous. eh, talking about 
*developing* Glimpse at this stage is ridiculous -- there is no development 
there, and won't be for a long time.

and, of course, it is better to stay away from Glimpse to avoid bad 
publicity when that project will fail.

sincerely yours, mechanical elf, also known as captain obvious, one who 
forked more projects than he has brain cells (dmd included in the list).
