I feel like a rewrite of the UI would be very exciting even if it never succeeds, simply because it will be a good large-scale test of D or Rust GUI programming, and hopefully generate some good libraries in the process.

Power to them if they want to try. But I feel like there's more practical and needed work on an important and somewhat unique program like Gimp. Again - skeptical of anyone who calls for a rewrite of a codebase instead of fixing things or building new features.
