Will there some kind of plug-in architecture so it is possible to add
say .bz2 and .z7 support to the GIO level? If so, couldn't the zlib
dependency also be made optional? Not that I see a problem with a
mandatory zlib dependency.

GIMP currently has bad hacks to support transparent loading of .xcf.gz
and .xcf.bz2 files and it would be nice to let this be handled at a
lower level.
