I don't quite understand what you are up to. All the data is kept in the
core if you use gimp_drawable_transform_matrix_default(). You just tell
the core to transform the drawable. No data is actually sent to the
I assume that the drawable your plug-in is working with, is actually a
layer. Then the easiest way to create a copy of the drawable is to
duplicate that layer.
