No, it's a lot more complex, and I'm not sure if inkscape is actually
able to do it. :-)

At the moment the source image is an xcf with 11 layers.  The scripts
shows, hides, mirrors and rotates them and saves 33 images in the
process.  Those images are the tiles which are used by the program
(simple pixmaps with no transparency).

The problem is that every time a new version of the gimp is released,
there's a chance that the script no longer works.  History has shown
that that chance is in fact pretty high.  So that's why I wouldn't mind
using a different image processor.  But I do want to keep generating the
images, because it'd be annoying to need to change 23 images to make a
modification in the way the mirror looks.
