This was more of a hack since I'm not fluent with gtk+, and reimplementing my own
levels dialog from my own toolkit was easier than trying to rip out the one in
the existing levels tool.

Not quit sure what you mean by this,. if you A) mean having the levels influenced
by choosing FG/BG as white/black point,.. it already does, for graybalance it should
just do a autostretch contrast instead. B) add the ability to set white|gray|black 
point to the existing levels tool,.. then the name of the tool should be changed
since it no longer would be a levels tool (it feels like I fail to comprehend what
you were trying to convey)

The core color-correction tools sure need some updates, but one of the
reasons for doing this as a plug-in is that these operations belong
together, and the user should be able to interactivly experiment with
different settings between color-balance / levels.

Working on a plug-in feels safe, and the edit,compile,test cycle is
short. But my understanding of both gimp and gtk+ have gradually
increased this night due to coding this plug-in,.. so perhaps,..
