Good, this architecture, as I originally intended should allow us to absorb 
all of Gimp's resources.  The only thing I'm not sure about is the native 
file format.  At one point, I just wanted to use XCF, the world really 
doesn't need yet another image file format, however, at the same time, to do 
without XML in koffice might mean that we would have to override an lose 
various features that the framework buys us.  For example, the framework uses 
KIO so we don't have to, we always see a local document no matter where it 
is, if we drop XML, we might also be dropping these features too.

I still haven't looked at it, I still want to get my clipboard work in at some 
point :).
