I also don't think it's smart - If we do say that the PDF export is a
global task ("In both cases the user wants to export a PDF") then it
shouldn't be associated with any image.

The only point is that if we have both procedures merged to one
procedure, then the user will have some trouble when handling 2
different PDFs. If the user works on 2 PDFs at the same time, one of
images 1 and 2, and another of images 3 and 4 he will be annoyed to
set the pages again for every PDF. It shouldn't be a problem with 2
pages but if a user wants to export 50 pages as PDF, it starts to
become a problem...

However, now that I think of it, GIMP's product vision doesn't say
that it's a page layout program, so maybe we shouldn't really worry
about this :-)

I wish I could try the new branch, however I don't have a computer to
test it on with administrator rights... I need someone to package GIMP
2.7 as a zip so I can extract and run it (The windows installer
requires administrator rights, and installing a package on linux also
requires this).
If anyone can package a windows (32 bit)/linux (64 bit) build as a
single archive and not as an installer, I'll be very thankful =)
Then I'll also be able to test my plugin on GIMP 2.7 (right now, most
of my coding for feature releases of GIMP is done "blind" - I test
everything I can on the stable version, and when I want to use the new
api I read it, write some code and hope for good :D)
