As I discussed in IRC with Bruno yesterday, we aren't looking to drop or
replace Ristretto for now.
As for what comes for image viewers/photo collection managers, I don't
think those are generally a suitable replacement for GIMP; with them,
you can't create new images or image compositions, only edit/polish
existing ones. That said, I would consider that ability a requirement
for the replacement for GIMP, if any are up for consideration.
