   actually we wanted to integrate gimp-print-4.2 into gimp-1.3 first.
   Then, with some experience, do the same change for 1.2. Until now
   we haven't come around to do so. Perhaps we should indeed consider
   to update gimp-print in the stable branch.

   How do you suggest should we proceed? Should we depend on
   libgimpprint or would it be a good idea to ship gimp-1.2.4 with the
   whole thing?

I'd much rather you link to libgimpprint, and I thought that that's
what we had decided.  The 4.2.1 version of the plugin, which is
presumably what you'd use, had no changes whatsoever over 4.2.0; that
code base is rock stable.  4.2.2 will offer a useful quality upgrade
(a new dither algorithm) for people printing photos, but that will be
a library-only upgrade.  4.2.3 may require a plugin upgrade to get
some new functionality that we're discussing, but the 4.2.0 plugin
will work with 4.2.3, it just won't have that new functionality.

One option might be to distribute Gimp-print as an extra (mirror the
distribution of the latest 4.2 release).
