Parasites are a mechanism for attaching arbitrary binary data to an image or
layer,
so they will support just about anything you can imagine.  The main thing to
think
about is compatibility:  if you want your plug-in to generate persistent
parasites and
read them later, the process needs to work on every platform, and future
versions of
your plug-in should not break if they are applied to images that contain
parasites
generated by earlier versions.  This "future backward compatibility"
principle is what
usually calls for the most thought.
