[Gimp-developer] Adding better LCH support to GIMP 2.10

GIMP's new LCH blend modes are wonderful. But trying to use these new blend modes without the proper supporting tools is sort of like being given a new Aston-Martin with a 35-mile-per-hour governor on the engine.

To make the LCH blend modes truly useful GIMP needs:

* an LCH Hue-Chroma tool.
* LCH color sliders added to the "Change Foreground Color" dialog.
* the Luminance blend mode in addition to the LCH Lightness blend mode.

There are already more or less useable patches for the LCH Hue-Chroma tool and LCH color sliders (https://bugzilla.gnome.org/show_bug.cgi?id=749902), and for the Luminance blend mode (https://bugzilla.gnome.org/show_bug.cgi?id=753163).

Adding the LCH Hue-Chroma tool and LCH color picker sliders for GIMP 2.10, right alongside the eventually-to-be-deprecated(?) HSV Hue-Saturation tool and HSV color picker sliders, would allow GIMP users a chance to adapt to LCH before HSV is summarily removed from the UI.
