The issue is conceptual. You do not need to fire up the giant machine
that is gimp to this little thing... GIMP is not a tool for this
usecase. It is capable of doing it, but it will not be perfectly
convenient. You can use a scalpel to cut bread. It will do the job,
but it would be done better and faster with a bread knife. However you
would not want this person cutting into your body with a breadknife,
simply because it's unsafe. You try to make GIMP into a breadknife so
you can more comfortably cut bread where as its intended purpose is to
be a scalpel, a tool for thins where unsafe operations are a no-go....
