I don't think the one you point to below is the same as Liquid Resizer
(see http://schumaml.gmxhome.de/downloads/gimp/ and d/l http://schumaml.gmxhome.de/downloads/gimp/gimp-lqr-plugin-0.1.3.zip for it).

Looks like someone has implemented it already:

Trying to compile the supporting libraries.. it's a PITA, unfortunately.
I hope you succeed - the colorizer looks like it would be a lot of fun to play with. From the Readme there, here is a pdf and an abstract from the algorithm author:

   * http://www.cs.huji.ac.il/~alevin/papers/colorization-siggraph04.pdf
   * http://www.cs.huji.ac.il/~yweiss/Colorization/

Popping up to his home page it looks like he's done a lot of interesting "stuff":

If you succeed would you be generating for Win32 platform? (hopefully :-) )
