I think this is already reality, as most people will get gimp from a gnu/linux distribution and many if not most of them will ship these extensions as seperate packages already. (and the rest should easily be prepared to deal with installing things from source). To me it's all a matter of the installer. Simons agruments, however, smell a lot of "standard gimp extension language", because his goal is to have one language that is always pat of gimp, which would effectively be a standard. I don't think that's a bad idea at all, especially when we later think of macro recording and other tasks, where we _will_ need some standardized macro language that should be easy to translate into real scripts. -- -----==- | ----==-- _ | ---==---(_)__ __ ____ __ Marc Lehmann +-- --==---/ / _ \/ // /\ \/ / [EMAIL PROTECTED] |e| -=====/_/_//_/\_,_/ /_/\_\ XX11-RIPE --+ The choice of a GNU generation | | _______________________________________________ Gimp-developer mailing list [EMAIL PROTECTED] http://lists.xcf.berkeley.edu/mailman/listinfo/gimp-developer
