The scheme dialect used in gimp is neither a "logical language", nor a
real (strict) functional language, nor type-safe....

It does, however, run under windows, unlike gimp-perl, which should be
very easy to port without Gtk. Porting Gtk should be easy too, if the
destination is named cygwin.

Unfortunately, the developers who do the windows port don't use the same
config mechanisms as under unix/cygwin, and Gtk is proven to be hard to
port to that environment.

So an automatic translation to script-fu would be the most portable
choice, since users don't care for the implementation.
