Hi Pasi, 

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.
