Hi Gonzalo, 

   I think at this stage of the project the key issue is, do have all the
processing tools you need or not? I think everyday needs are now all covered
for most of us, including color management and many other nice stuff. For
usability to improve, it will only take so long for a pro with dev skills to
discover digikam and then simply develop a plugin or a new workflow-oriented
view for digikam. 

BTW, Why don't you open a bug (wishlist) with your idea of the interface?

I think the breakthru now is that this tool does all (or most) I need. Which
for me, means not having to boot vmware wincrap image each time I need to
work on my photos.
