My current work at hand will possibly require me to write a plugin for
GIMP (current version) which will use GEGL for its image processing
operations. So if I proceed, I shall let the list know.
Here a couple of more queries:
1. Does any of the developers here have some demo C code which takes
in a XML file specification of the operations and performs the image
processing tasks using GEGEL?
2. Can I assume safely that most of the image processing operations
are "applying the same operation" to each pixel of the image?
