Well, there are license issues when a non-GPL application makes calls
to GPL-ed code by whatever means. This is a difficult subject and it's
hard to judge if a plug-in should be considered part of the GIMP
application (which would mean that the GPL applies) or if it's a mere
aggregation as per section 2 of the GNU General Public License. Our
position on this is outlined in the file LICENSE which is included
with the GIMP source tree.
