Hi Michael,
People work on what they think is important, which might not coincide with
what you think is important. So, if you want to get it done, the best way is
to just do it yourself.

I don't know anything about Photoshop plug-ins, but writing a GIMP file
handler plug-in based should not be very hard if the above mentioned library
does the heavy lifting. If it has a command line tool for converting to/from
a image format that GIMP knows, a quick and dirty way could be to call that
in the script. If so, its doable with some 10 lines of Python + the
boilerplate to register the plugin.
