As I recall, the SIOD that's part of gimp is not a "stock" version of
SIOD, as there were various bugs detected and fixed in SIOD in the 0.99.x
and 1.2.x gimp releases.  There *may* be fixes in the gimp's custom
SIOD that never got back into the mainline SIOD.  That means that using
a newer SIOD *might* cause some regressions.

I'm not trying to dissuade anyone from making the change, I'm just trying
to give whoever does it a "heads up" that they may want to see if they can
detect if there are any fixes that should be forward-ported into the new
SIOD gimp swallows.
