Maybe it's just gimp-perl then. Maybe it's the fact that gimp-perl simply
relies on all symbols, while gimp-print probably only relies on the most
common (&small) subset. In that case, most probably only gimp-perl is hurt...
Which might also be the only plug-in where the community has considerable
need to be convinced that a new version of some tool is as stable as the old
one (because people's income depends on working servers) before they switch.
Anyway, I *did* switch to the new API before writing my lament. I wrote
that mail because I *do* think such an under-the-hood-change deep *within*
the feature freeze is highly unconventional.
So backwards compatibility is not just not my problem anymore.
