Gimp itself is written in some variant of C, isn't it?

The only "portability" issue here is that you'd need to compile it on
all target OS's.  No big deal -- that's how GIMP is made anyways.  Use
MinGW for Windows, and Linux uses the GCC and related tools.  Easy
enough.

Script-Fu only has the "advantage" of not requiring compilation before
execution, but it doesn't handle Raw IO or pixel-based image creation
IIRC (for good reason, too, proally).

Perl probably has similar limitations, to a certain extent.  Perl
handles text best -- binary data, it's best at simply passing... I
believe the term is ad verbatim or something.

Try copying a C image format plugin that already exists, maybe (e.g. xbm)?
