Debugging them, lack of documentation, unneccessary brackets (guess I
need a better editor) in general and the worst thing: it's not fast.
It took about a minute to color 200x200 pixels which is not usable for a
simple handmade draw-rectangle function. So should one recommend to
write extensions to gimp in this language? I seriously doubt that. On
the other hand it would be cool to have a portable language for this and
all future gimp-versions. So what would you choose to write some cool
filters? C/C++? Scheme?
