Hello everyone,

I'm happy to announce the availability of a new round of Oilify plug-in 

      Bugzilla: http://bugzilla.gnome.org/show_bug.cgi?id=347075
    Screenshot: http://www.iskunk.org/tmp/oilify-dialog.png

This allows the use of an arbitrary exponent in the oilify algorithm (lower 
values == fuzzier/blurrier, higher values == sharper/blotchier), and 
complete localized control of the mask size and exponent via maps.

With this, you can do Rembrandt-style effects---for example, a portrait 
with an eye in great detail, but becoming more and more impressionistic the 
farther you get from it. I'd even put together an example of this, but 
regretfully, I lost it a while back. (I've been sitting on this patch for 
months now... never got around to submitting it :]

There's a couple remaining questions, w.r.t. the scripting interface and 
the semantics of intensity vs. RGB mode; see the Bugzilla report. Someone 
may want to refactor the GUI a bit, too---my GTK-fu really isn't that up to 

Also, I suppose documentation will have to be updated at some point, 
especially to note how a control map interacts with the associated scalar 
in the oil engine. Could anyone comment on how this should happen?
