OK this helps.  I was trying to use it on a gray scale image.

It appears to not work.  I got the following error message about 2/3 of the 
way through the process:

"GIMP Message

Plug-in "greycstoration"

requested invalid drawable (killing)"

The image was not a small one (2650x2309) and this message was after about 6 
minutes of processing.  I used the default settings that the tool opens up 
with.  So I am not sure if this is a general bug or an amd64 specific 
problem.  Also I don't think the preview was working as I could not see any 
difference no matter how I set the controls.  

Most of the images I would use something like on are older photos that I have 
scanned from large format negatives as gray scale images.  These tend to be 
large images (15 to 20 megapixel).  I have been using Neat Image on Windows 
for this and it can take 10 to 15 minutes to process a single image.  So I 
don't mind this taking a while to process the image if it finishes and does a 
good job.  

You might want to have a look at Neat Image to get some ideas about how to 
implement your user interface.   They have a somewhat cripple demo version 
that you can download for free.   It has a step that, with the help of the 
user, analyzes the image and gives a starting point for fine adjustments.  It 
is by far the most powerful tool I have used for this to date.  If you can 
come close to this level of power with a GIMP plug-in that would be one less 
thing I need Windows for and I would be one step closer to not needing 
Windows at all.

Since I was asking for advice that might have been specific to my situation I 
contacted you off list.  But perhaps I should have stayed on list.
