Then you probably have done sth. wrong, as ImageMagick's algorithms are
way superior (and way slower ;) to the mere cubic interpolation gimp uses.

Are you sure you tried sth. like:

   convert sourcefile -filter mitchell -geometry <newgeometry> destfile

also, other filters than the mitchell filter (which is usually best) are
also worth a try, "cubic" for example should rather closely match gimp's

Well, I am no scirpt-fu expert, but I get a lot of mail that tells me that
scirpt-fu simply doesn't work noninteractively, or at leats not correctly,
or returns too earfly etc.. etc..
