No, rather not... Currently I'm struggling with tabs support for gcmd
and intviewer was kind of a break for me from this misery ;o)

I agree it's not that comfortable... As a kind of a workaround,
intviewer might remember the state of metatags tree view in the current
image and use it for next one... That should save 't' and Exif clicking
at least.

Intviever definitely needs some revamping. I've been thinking on the
support for viewing consecutive files too. IMHO it should work for
selected files in gcmd, and navigation should be done with simply
LEFT/RIGHT keys. The bad news is, unfortunately, that it requires much
more coding and therefore I've postponed it for future relases.

Another-nice-things (TM) would be: 1) toolbar and 2) scrolling the view
with mouse...

First things first: tabs -> 1.2.8, switch to GtkKtreeView (and adding
'custom columns') -> 1.2.9

Fixed, rev. #2191

It is to be done, but not at the moment... :o(
