One of the ideas that I believe Sven raised on irc, was that there should be a minimal and trivial interface to the PDB that is not based on any particular language but just consists of:
gimp_foo -bar 3 -baz yellow
Perhaps I'm being extremely dense, but couldn't there be an interface:
gimp -cmdfile <filename>
Surely notepad can handle funny characters and the name of the file is completely up to you so you can make it as shell-friendly as you'd like. GIMP could have some extra code to handle "text mode" files, but that's about all that would be needed ...
