yes, but i guess one has to test-implement it to be able to

this is my problem: i don't know very much about gimp's UI-programming
as of now.

i'd really like to add path-cooling first,
as i think it's fairly independent to the underlaying path calculation
(as this is done different in gimp from what i've seen,
although i must admit i don't yet understand everything of
