This is similar to a question I had some time ago - I wanted to use
GIMP to paint texture maps as they are wrapped around a 3D model.

Rather than repeatedly saving to disk, you'd probably want a plugin
that could copy the current image into shared memory - that would be
a gazillion times faster I think.

Uncompressed SGI '.rgb' format is pretty close.
