working with FreeSoftware, I'd say it would be very important if we
could get this in GIMP 2.8
Even if for gimp 3.0 and beyod we think of CMYK exports in a totally
different way - all plug-ins will have to be rethough when we get to
GIMP 3.0 anyway. The demand for this ability however we agree that it
is not the best approach, is very high in the professional levels. At
least around here, where the print stores use to require
pre-separated artwork from the authors.
