GIMP: Layer Styles, Panoramas, and transparency

An email to the GIMP User List has a link to a Python layer style plugin. I haven’t tried it yet but an earlier plugin doesn’t work in GIMP 2.x anymore so I’ll try the “proof of concept” Python one.
Stitch Panorama 0.9.2 was announced on the list too. Replies were all positive, and Owen posted manual and automatic examples. I have a vertical panorama of Marshall Fields’ department store to fix up. I may use this to help me!
Ever wonder why you can’t write to a transparent layer? It is possible, you only have to enable it.
Oh, and finally.. if you’re annoyed by the way GIMP uses (or not) windows, then the next revision has much better control.
