I ran across much talk and some implementation of GEGL.  I can see how the

Q: How hard will it be to log the GEGL graph evolution to disk in real-time
using perhaps a rolling log?   What is the best approach for an idea like

For the approach, pippin and I sketched together a basic spec a couple
of years back.

"How hard" is always a tricky question to answer... One would have to
implement such a Journal, including persistence and wiring up to
follow GEGL graph changes. These tasks would require one to be fairly
comfortable with C programming. Some GObject experience would be a

*However*, I believe the GEGL graphs used in GIMP are still "short
lived" - used for the duration of one operation and then applied
destructively. Meaning that there is no one graph which represents the
entire document and thus the evolution of your artwork.
It may be possible to try to stich together a sort of journal from all
these , but probably there would be need for a significant amount of
GIMP specific logic in addition... Not sure of the feasibility here.
