And hope that nothing changes in the Gimp core that breaks #1 with each 
release(which I would absolutely love to happen each release just for the 
damned irony of it) and/or that the original plugin author will continue to 
support any such changes until the end of time(or someone else will).   Ditto 

I find it's just much easier to adapt rather than rely on someone else to 
continue doing something out of the goodness of their heart until the end of 
time(and if they don't, then I have to adapt anyway... so why the hell not just 
bite the bullet sooner vs later...)
