Ouch, I would consider this to be *very* unfortunate. This combination
is what makes Gimp very useful to me. Debugging script-fu scripts is
beyond my capabilities. What are the reasons for not having gimp-perl
support in gimp-1.4 ?

What needs to be done to keep gimp-perl support in gimp-1.4 ? 

I think it is perfectly reasonable that gimp-perl is a completely
separate package from gimp itself, and that the packaging is using the
ordinary Perl mechanism (Makefile.PL, etc). AFAIK, PerlMagick is a
separate package from ImageMagick, so why should Gimp be any
