I use GQview with a hotkey bound to open the image in the GIMP. If the GIMP is already open, it loads it into the existing session, which takes much less than a second on my three-year-old machine.
I also have hotkeys bound to scripted commands for common operations like rotate left, right, etc. I guess if I were really keen I could make some of the commands go through Script-Fu to run arbitrary GIMP operations.
It seems more unixy (in a good way) to have a viewer call a powerful editor rather than having a half-assed editor in the viewer.
