  You should be able to go with convert, then (ImageMagick). convert
is extremely powerful and quite stable (it has too, it is a
command-line-only tool). convert natively reads XCF images, and I
would be very surprised if it doesn't keep layer information (I didn't
have time to check though). If you want, I may dig into that sometime
soon. I'll need some explanations probably about what is currently
being done.
