Re: "Consistent interfaces. Sweat the details. Designers
notice how much you fake this crap."* That's nice.* Have you
noticed how much more aligned things became in CS3, and how
much further that's been taken in the CS4 betas now
revealed?* We're actively making things more consistent, and
that will necessarily entail change, pain, and thus
bitching.* So it goes.

Any such comments from the Gimp programmers?
