Gimp::Fu is a convinience interface to gimp-perl, it provides an easy way
to register functions and to create a simple-but-usable user interface for
most plug-ins. Gimp::Net is just an interface module and is loaded
automatically and on demand, so you do not usually need to use it explicitly.

Both are orthogonal to each other. You can call gimp functions without
Gimp::Fu (and also without Gimp::Net, as the mkain gimp module will
automatically load thew appropriate interface module for you).

Many people use Xvfb or Xvnc on their server machines. The next major
version of Gimp (2.0) will be much more modular (and maybe we will soon be
independent of X due to the freetype plug-in).
