Good technical anwer, thanks.

I'm also wondering from a license standpoint. The code in app is GPL, but
libgimp is LGPL. I'm not a lawyer, but it would seem that to change the code
license from GPL that GIMP would need to get permission from all authors, or
reserve the right to change the license later. Sven has said in the past
that he often checks in patches in his own name in CVS, that GIMP does not
keep exact records of who its authors are.

How do you get permission to move GIMP code from GPL into LGPL?
