Are there *professional* designers who use GIMP for production?

Of course there are. A lot of the movie production studios use it, along with Film Gimp.

These to projects aren't related anymore... In fact, CinePaint[1] is even droping GTK and most of GIMP's codebase.

Real pro won't use it before it gains full CMYK support.

So I take it you think that every pro that uses an image editing application requires CMYK.

Hate to tell you this but there are many professions where the images never go any where near a printing press.

Well, GIMP can't be used for press work since it lacks CMYK and Lab support but it can be and is used for everything else, including web design. I, for instance, use it in together with Blender a lot to create UV maps for my 3D models, desaturate and perform other small adjustments on Blender renders, composing artwork to be used on my webpages, animated banners, etc.

It is a great tool, regardless of what some people here might think.
