Yup. thinline used 3x3 convolution kernels - a LoG is obviously a
larger (although decomposable) covolution; it could be done as a
script-fu, since we have both a L plug-in and a G plug-in already

edge.c and sobel.c already redundancise each other. the default
edge algorithm in edge.c is Sobel, and the only additions are the
ability to use only vertical or horizontal components, and the
fact that it affects the alpha channel.
