Of course, such a document does exist at remotesensing.org, and it
would be nice if the tiff plugin for GIMP simply kept the geotiff
tags in the file, but I guess it is one of the features of this style
of open source software development that you can have GIMP and GDAL
developed on the same model, but they can't interoperate.
