GIMP will in the 2.10 cycle depend a _lot_ more on GEGL, actually by
the end of the cycle everything you normally do in GIMP should be
powered by GEGL. Creating test cases, verifying that GEGL behaves
correctly as well as developing new operations is easier with a
standalone tool. GEGL used to have a GUI sandbox for such experiments
that used a tree based representation with clones (see for some screen shots). Such a
tool that permits more direct manipulation and testing of the concepts
of GEGL (which is a processing graph of nodes) permits faster
developer feedback as well as making it easier to construct test cases
for verifying the behavior of GEGL - this is something that increases
in importance as GEGL is adopted for the core parts of GIMP.
