GIMP developers have been painfully aware that this is a serious
short-coming of the current architecture for the last decade. There is
no need to reiterate this :).
Besides what needs fixing is the 8bit per component limitation, 16
bits/component isn't how it will be fixed though. The internal
processing will jump straight to 32bit floating point allowing HDR
processing and other advantages.
