Probably not true.  I use it -- because I have to -- no other options
but I am very clumsy in it to be sure.  I just don't have time to learn
all of the basic knowledge one needs to use it effectively.

Not at all.  I would rather use f-spot to launch a gimp, run a recipe
and have my modified image back in f-spot.

Right.  And are not willing to invest the time just to modify some

Maybe not.  Most people know how to install software though.

Why minor?  Some people could employ some really good recipes and it
could wind up being quite a powerful set of features.  See that's the
whole point of using the gimp for this.  The possibilities of photo
enhancement operations is limited only by the gimp, not what somebody
wants to code up from scratch for f-spot.

Surely it must be.  Re-use is always easier than writing from scratch.

I dunno.  Never seen Picaso.  Just commenting on using the gimp for
photo editing.
