I'm not thinking of an "official" PPlay SDK.  Just a set of tools which
we are packaging as a sort of communitity service.  When we are ready to
release a PPlay SDK, we might want to include consider some of these
tools as part of PPlay.  For now though, they are just RPMed tools.

Eventually we will write Gimp plugins.  Specically, one to allow saving
to PPlay archive files.   But first we need support for archives.  But
yes as far as PPlay goes, we don't care about GIMP or any other particular
draw program.
