I have an idea about a new plugin that could help you.
I gonna write an example of the functions:
Two months ago, I was working in a Panoramica Job manually (following the "Grokking the GIMP" book). The file was bigger then my mail sent-limit, then I smalled the image size by the half.
After, at home, I did make all the job and get some satisfactory result. But, the small size of the image makes me redo all the work in the original file, step by step, just changing the sizes of the filters, selections and editions.
Well, the plugin I thought, should start with a window indicating the actual size and resolution of the image, and asking the size and resolution we would like to work with.
Then the original image and all the commands should be saved (in memory, external file GIMP file), while we are using they in a smallest image.
At the end, the plugin "translates" all the commands to the original size and transform the original size file.
The advantage of this plugin?
Faster image edition.
I think a plugin like this could help you too.
This is just an idea, I don' t know "C program language", but I' m interessed in aid this development. I don' t know how to suggest this to the developers, but I think this plugin could be very useful for a lot of GIMP users.
That's all Folks !!!

Hint- buy some more ram. - I have edited some 1.8gig images on a PC with
4gig of ram using the gimp, its not that fast- but it was useable.
I know you probably want an sdk that can handle images bigger then your
physical memory- but you cant have the best of all worlds.
Large images + Low Ram + Fast editing just isnt that possible- unless
the operations can be edited on tiles as you suggest. not all func's can
be tiled, so probably to save your self some time - buy a 1gig chip.
