Oh, testing Gimp is easy (well, gimp + ufraw) - I've got a
directory on my 'photos' machine containing some pictures. Open a
raw file, process it to get a somewhat tolerable jpeg, then crop it
and ensure I can get the ratio displayed while I'm doing it. After
that, I've got other scripts I use which test the exif progs. But,
that's something I use a lot (when I've got the time), and it was
why I didn't update Gimp at some time in 2009 (previous version was
fine, new version lost the display of the crop ratio at that time).

OK, I was reading more into 'works properly'. I'll probably tag
file-runner as 'works properly'.
