Why bind it into gimp? This tool could be totally independent of GIMP runtime
wise. All that would be need on gimp side is support for using gimp-remote to
trigger reloading of resources. All other management could happen outside
GIMP. Functions needed to read and write gimp conf should be easily portable
from gimp code.
