as I have blogged here:


a boxes and hoses editor will never be the _main_ interaction
in GIMP for non-linear editing.

I certainly would hate to see it in any form (even experimentally)
be integrated in GIMP before the (the start of) the actual main
interaction is. doing this would send completely the wrong signal
to the whole user community what non-linear working in GIMP is
all about.

however, if we think a bit further, we can see that the interaction
that I am outlining in the blogpost is nothing more than an
organised version of the boxes and hoses graph.

starting work on that as a project would contribute to advancing
GEGL integration in GIMP.

I can only really hope, that he meant that in the way I outlined
above. because the other way around it is a very good way to derail
interaction work on GIMP.
