  I thought i have seen this script before a long time ago.. didn't 
know that it is "beyond repair" now..

  I am sure there are a lot of old scripts that will break in Gimp2,
why not list them, and if people here want to help out, we can try 
to update these scripts.. i remember iccii used to have a large 
collection of scripts, those could be good start ?
