Only _some_ of those experienced users, and, it seems, the most vocal
ones. The ones who won't stop even when facing a lack of plans to
adjust GIMP's behavior.

I think I already understand that you dismiss existence of other
experienced users who like the change. Do you really need to remind
about that over and over again?

One a more personal note, it's all right to exercise the freedom of
