That's almost too optimistic thing to say at the moment, as GIMP's
single window interface has been in talks, like, since when, early 2009?

Instead, we got this:

While I agree that that gimpshop itself is pretty rotten, there's no
viable alternative for people willing (needing?) to use it, so backing
up its deprecation with the planned (*cough*) release of GIMP 2.8
probably isn't the very best possible course in this case... At this
time, there isn't even a specific release date in plans for 2.8 and even
if that eventually happens, many people [citation needed] doubt that the
single-UI will actually make it there (as, currently, there's not even a
spec finalized for it). Just saying.
