 That's the hitting point, if you want to use perl or script-fu here you
 have to produce code for (possibly :)) highlevel languages which isn't 
 quite simple. In my illusion at least making tags from events and the
 way back should be simpler...

 XML is very abstract, you can do nearly everything with it (except
 saving images :))... the macrorecording feature was just a quick idea
 by me; originally my intend for XML in GIMP was using it as a save
 format for user options to get that ugly rc parser out of GIMP....
