Aha, I misread the GIMP 2.8 announcements. I guess I thought GEGL was
inherently high bit depth. So, several years then is fairly accurate?
I neglected in my opening post to THANK the devs for their hard work. GIMP is a
great app. Keep up the hard work.
I'm no programmer, not even remotely. Not much I can do as far as helping,
except apparently to be yet another whiny user asking, "why can't GIMP do 'x'?"
Keep on keepin on. I'm dedicated to an OSS workflow in my artistic endeavors
... but PS is quite tempting, IF I had the money ...
