Personally I think we should accept a sane patch that gives GIMP the 
ability to load OpenRaster files, for 2.8.

This is a good idea, code duplication is never good and the easier it is 
to adopt to OpenRaster, the more will do it.

The library will then be used to write a file-plugin for the file 
plug-in architecture we come up with for GIMP 2.10/3.0.
