Very nice indeed! The author has built his own cross-platform widget set on 
top of SDL for this application (which explains why it has been in 
development since 1995 or so and can even run on plain ms-dos). One thing 
that we must address some time is the non-existence of small versions of 
widgets in Qt. Photoshop and pixel use a special, small version of the 
widgets for the palettes, and that leaves plenty of room.

It can do almost everything; it's a true Photoshop replacement, plus, it can 
also do most of the things Idruna's Photogenics can do. Furthermore, it 
depends on lcms just like Krita and has a performance test plugin, too :-).
