Well, you could use the "Colors/Color to Alpha Channel" filter to remove
the white, but that will remove TOOO much. The way I would do it would
be to use the "magic wand" (Select continuous regions tool) to select
the continuous regions of the background color and then use "Edit/Clear"
to remove them.
