I understand from all the comments that it is intrusive. Still, tumme
does not require any window configuration at all really. It's up to
you how many buffers you want to see, depending on what you want to do
with it. That three window-configuration is very handy when you are
doing certain kinds of work with your images, trust me, but of course
far from all.

Yesterday I posted some small changes to tumme that would make it less
intrusive for a first time user. Try them out.

Yay! :)

I will try it!

Great, thanks!
