The code imports the palette. This means it's loaded in GIMP then and
can be saved as a GIMP palette.
I am not sure why we are doing it this way at all. Gradients are
transparently loaded from two different formats (GIMP's native one and
SVG). We could do this for palettes as well and just load all supported
palette formats on startup. But this is not really relevant now. You can
add the code to load Illustrator palettes to the current framework now
and we can consider to change it later.
