I've seen a lot of discussion about this through googling, but found no answers. In GIMP for Mac, I just want to keep all the dialog windows above my main document window. Is it possible?

Do you need all the features of GIMP? If not, Seashore is a GIMP fork with a Cocoa interface. Not as feature-rich but the UI is much more Mac-friendly. – Ian C. Mar 10 '11 at 15:05

You could use the SIMBL extension, afloat. I use this tool all the time, especially when working with reference images and the like.
