I disagree with yours. Now what?

Gimp 1.2.5 is part of base Fedora Core 1.90. When development moves to the
Gimp 2.0, it is natural that this breaks things until the next "Test"
release. Packages in the development stream are not equal to Fedora Core

Wrong assumption, because gimp-2.0 upgrades gimp-1.2.5, so as soon as that
happens you lose the stuff provided by gimp-1.2.5, which other "old"
packages still depend on until they are updated, too.

See above.
