GIMP's new LCH blend modes are wonderful. But trying to use these new blend

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 (,
and for the Luminance blend mode

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.

Personally, I find darktable's Color Zones module [1] a far better
alternative. It's more flexible, for instance.

So _maybe_ it would be advisable to implement a new similar 'tool'
that would use LCH from the very beginning. The dt's implementation
already uses LCH [2].
