Geoff, great work, I am particularly impressed by the theory behind your plugin. I ran into a bit of trouble (see error messages at the end). While I typed this message, I came across the solution, so I'll post my question together with the answer in case others run into the same glitch. I have kubuntu 8.04 with GIMP 2.4 and Python 2.5. GIMP dumps the attached message in the console when it is loaded, and the plugin fails to load (yes, I did chmod a+x Restore.py). Apparently, kubuntu's GIMP package does not include the gimp-python package, which needs to be installed manually with `apt-get install gimp-python' (or with aptitude).
