Basically "close to gimp's code" means: "Is subject to change without
notice". There is fancy stuff in it like parasites, text layers in the
near future and also Path stuff. Of course this could be ignored safely
but we could also decide to add new layer modes etc. pp, maybe we at
some time get layer groups which might have a significant impact on the
rendering pipeline.

I think you face a huge task with little value - xcf will never become a
widely accepted animation standard. Having this in mplayer would of
course have a cool showoff value but thats basically it and I don't
think it is worth the effort.
