I see, that's cool.

But it seems like that the process of creating task-set is not intuitive 
enough. Also, do users have to manually capture/upload the snapshot of their 
task-set or your system will automatically capture it? 

The better way to do so is perhaps like Grabler's automatic tutorial generation 
work at SIGGRAPH 2009?


In any case, I really like the direction you are taking and I believe your 
system will really shine after the GIMP provides the macro function someday.  
Assume someone is to share her newly recorded macro, she can analyze and 
annotate her macro with your system then share it via the wiki. And other users 
can download and apply the macro step-by-step in the speed they like. Wow, I do 
look forward the coming of that day!

About my work, yes, I will share the source code and I would definitely like to 
replace my current backend with GEGL. But this thread is really about Michael's 
wonderful work and we should discuss my system on some separate thread :D

@Michael Terry, Please accept my apology of mentioning my project in the 
thread, it seems to distract others' focus from your work.
