I can confirm this :

I know quite well hugin (and panotools) and enblend : I've built nearly
a hundred of panoramas with this tools for 6 years ...

Enblend is only required by hugin which automatically creates the
command line to use it.
Sophie confirms that nothing else requires enblend !

Enblend is useless without a program that has stiched photos before
enblend itself blends them into one.
Enblend is hard to use by writing manually its command line...
(better let hugin do that)

It has no opensource GUI for linux and can't be applied to the
panoramas built with the deprecated "Panorama Tools Plugin" for Gimp or
with the pandora plugin for gimp (that has poor ability)

There's no reason to keep enblend alone after hugin has been removed (as
I suggested april 21st)
(same for libpano and libpano-tools that can be safely removed)
