Neither of which are something one usually needs in a situation where
one wants to stick to a colormap while editing.

Smudge and layer masks are two things that I would appreciate for indexed images. I already have workarounds which let me return the results to the appropriate palette quickly, that is how I found that out.

Your idea of "real work" is obviously very different from mine.
I do lots of real work on indexed images.

I don't really care whether it is duplicated in GEGL or outside it, as
long as the net effect of "don't let my editing result in pixel colors
outside this small predeterined palette" is still attainable with the
sum of GEGL + futureGimp.

That is essentially what I want, too.

Is that quote meant to be hard to understand? Or just to demonstrate how awkward english can be?
