So ..., I think a couple of things are not clear to me about gimp,
if plugins communicate with the core of gimp thought a pipe, I
should be able to create a plugin to do what i want, even 
call other plugins, but could that plugin be executed from outside
the core ?, even so it is necesary that gimp is running before
doing it ? are the core and gui strict releated, i mean are the same
thing? can the gui be down, and the core working ?
In other words, is it possible in any way to use gimp for 
automatic image processing/generating, because GEGL its very
promissing but gimp is fully charged with plugins and tools,
and It sould be very nice to use all that power for automatic
