And in the end, it's hardly going to be worth much, because we're basically 
limited to Photoshop 6. I tried to get info on the newest file psd format and 
even got as far as getting some person at Adobe to do his best for me, but 
the legal department nixed the idea of giving me the spec.

And xcf is explicitly described by the Gimp developers as an unstable internal 
file format, not suitable for interchange. I wonder what format could be used 
and garner strong support from all open source graphics apps.

I'm not sure, not being really knowledgeable, but I had the feeling that I 
couldn't get certain tags. But then, I may just have missed some features of 
the tiff importer.
