Wow, I don't even have a Logos section in Script Fu, in either 1.2.3 
(RH73 RPM) or 1.2.4 (from tarball).  I wonder what else I'm missing?
Anyone know where to get Text Circle?

Anyway, I didn't have anything that did this, and I wanted it for CD
labels, so I wrote Arclayer (it bends the current layer in an upper or
lower arc of a given radius).  It was also an excuse to play with python,
so I wrote it as a python plugin; eventually I may translate it to
C, but I haven't had time, so for now you have to install gimp-python, (in 1.3 it's included, I believe).

Arclayer has a few bugs (some extra pixels scattered around that you
have to clean up) so I haven't put it in the plugin registry or
anything, but you're welcome to try it:

It combines nicely with a CD template plugin:

Anyone know a way to bring up the gimp-print plugin with pre-initialized
values for offsets and scale?  That would make CD labels a lot easier.
