Nobody blames the developers, because the implementation of a full fledged DTP 
compatible image manipulation program is technically very complex, as I 
learned when trying to give some simple softproof capability to the vector 
graphics application Skencil.

But it is certainly not bad to strengthen the efforts of the developers of The 
GIMP, Krita or CinePaint by expressing a demand for a professional open 
source image manipulation program. There is already a very promising closed 
source alternative, Pixel by Pavel Kanzelsberger, being developed for many 
platforms including Linux.

Yours sincerely
