A thing to remember is that even when it is folded into the main gimp
binary it still needs special command line switches (otherwise gimp will
run into the same problems as mozilla/firebird etc. which often have
frontend shell scripts that mistakenly try to contact a running mozilla
instance, which only works in single-machine, single-user configs (fixed
in debian, btw, but many distros still do this)).
