I guess that's something to be considered too. If GIMP includes TITO
and next year all the major linux distributions have something like
Ubuntu's HUD, then we'll have something redundant that uses resources
and increase the size of the application with no benefit at all.

According to Sourceforge, 71-73% of the people that get my Gimp python plugins are using Windows (I get these very similar figures on three differents SF projects). The best Linux ratio is 25%. And since it's python, the figure is biased towards Linux. These users can't depend on HUD.
