If the goal is to write filters suitable for scientific processing I
would think it makes sense
to implement the filters for GEGL instead of GIMP, since GEGL operates
with 32bit floating
point buffers. Combining operations in GEGL to create new combined ops
is something that already is possible, but needs further work (it is
currently hard-coded in C while it should be done using an XML based
format or similar (as well as have a usable UI.).
