Last I checked, there is no native PyGTK+ for Windows 64bit, due to
the fact the binary signatures used by GCC in win 64 (used in gobject,
gtk+) and visualstudio (used for Python) are different.

I do not use Windows, and have no idea if this has changed. Since
pyGIMP works as an off-process plug-in, if it works, it is the way to
go, because there would not be a feasible work-around.

I intend to research and update pygimp to use gobject introspection
during gimp 2.9 - maybe that can allow for  a 64bit version of it on

(It is important to note that such problems do not happen under Linux
- and that there are other problems due to not using gobject
introspection under mac os x)
