First it's an unfounded assumption, when you simply have no clue what has been going on regarding development.

Then the part about "deserving" it speaks of a rotten, poisonous mindset, when your are dealing with a project run by volunteers, who generously offer the result of their freetime-work for free as in speech and beer.

To Martin: even 'Save' and 'Save as' on toolbar saves one click. Not
saying about such repitive operations as Rotate, Resize, Auto levels
etc. Now trivial photo treatment is done with the whole lot of clicks!
I'm pretty sure their count can be reduced thrice with toolbars.

The overall potential for time-saving goes down with increasing the number of toolbar icons, as it approaches an overwhelming forest of stuff.

Ambitious and professional users (the desired audience for GIMP) tend to learn shortcuts for the very frequent commands. To then have toolbar icons for them is just a waste of space.
