Hi Daniel,

you might have misunderstood me. The performance comparison only shows
that VIPS outperforms GEGL at least in this test.
Technical reasons can be found here:

In a mail John explained the differences to me:
"Gegl is really targeting interactive applications, not batch
processing, and it's doing a lot of work that no one else is doing,
like conversion to scRGB, transparency, caching, and so on."

I didn't claim that GEGL couldn't be as fast as VIPS. It might be
much faster as now by using VIPS as library. This is why there is
gegl-vips, a VIPS-based GEGL back-end.

You'll find some more information when digging this list for VIPS,
mails from John Cupitt and Nicolas Robidoux or GEGL's performance
in general.
