May be. I had looked at GEGL, but it is like a low level
api for image manipulation, if I unterstood well, for a simple task
(like, add a mask), you have to do a long sequence of operations. With
GEGL you have to talk with it using a DAG, in wicth images are edges,
and operations are nodes, its sound like a very complex task (and you
have to know about image proccessing). If it is the way, I will use it
and I will add a layer to make things a litle bit more easy to the
user of this 'extension'. It is just, I think I have to know a lot
about digital image proccessing to make a correct use of GEGL. I
believe that if gimp will use it, and I can develop a thing that can
'talk' with GIMP, that will be perfect. Again, I know a little about
those topics, if it is the recomended way to use GEGL or if I
misunderstood about GECL function, I will use it instead GIMP.
           Please, if you can clarify the subject to me, that will be nice.
           Thanks again.

Does GEGL work like Mariano thought libgimp work? In that case, it is maybe
a better idea to start looking at GEGL, has it will be, in the future, the
image manipulation library used in The Gimp...
