I want to mention that since we are in the progress of migrating to GEGL
we generally prefer that people make sure the GEGL counterpart works
well rather than maintaining the legacy 8 bpc code. A patch for GEGL is
much more attractive than a patch for an old GIMP plug-in.
That being said, the best way to submit patches is to open a bug report
at bugs.gimp.org and attach it there.
