I'm Alfonso. Maybe this is offtopic, but you said:
"As I discussed in IRC with Bruno yesterday, we aren't looking to drop
or replace Ristretto for now."
I find that Ristretto doesn't have the "Print..." option
and it's very common to open an image only for printing.
I think Image Viewer (formerly "Eye of Gnome") is very similar to
it's lightweight and it includes the print option.
What do you think?

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.
