I do. At least I understand the arguments

OK. Suddenly things are much more logical.

OK. Thanks. Due to being busy (great weather in Belgium, so a beer is in
order) I will be looking at all of this in more detail at a later date.
It is a pity that documentation about this is pretty hard to find (at
least I was not able to find it) and should have a more promenet place in
the GIMP documentation, but then that is just my opinion. I can understand
if I am only one of the few who wants to processing many images at the
same time AND is basically a script kiddie.

I will see how far I get to do the same, with the explanation above, for
slide.scm and drop-shadow.scm and will post both failure and success here
most likely next week.

I am very well aware of that. It is also hard to ask when you don't
understand what you are asking. ;-) I hate questions like "It doesn't
work!" and I hate myself for coming across like that.

Already I owe you a beer (or something else if you do not want beer) for
the efford you have put into this.
