So the huge image you generated is a fractal? Isn't it a bit silly to
render such images (especially if they are huge) with GIMP, where all
of the image's pixels are kept in memory (or the tile cache) all the
time? Aren't many fractals such that you could calculate the value of
each pixel independently of the others, with a very simple and minimal
(non-interactive) program?

(And if your desired output file format is PostScript, why not let the
printer do the job ;-) PostScript is after all a programming
language... Just send the printer a PostScript program that calculates
the desired image. For many fractals, it might be surprisingly short.)
