While Perl-fu is not ... at it's peak at the moment, from my memory,
perl scripts with the GIMP module can be loaded just like any

called myfile.pl and I go to that directory and call ./myfile.pl, it
will run.  [In fact, this is the only way I've figured out how to run
them -- I still haven't figured out how to register a Perl-Fu script
in the menus.  Heh.]  I don't know about Python, but I can imagine it
could be possible - although would you need to open the images from
Python itself to do so?
