Does anyone know if its possible to use Filter Factory (aka 8bf) files
in PIL, or any other way from Python or commandline? Apparently
there's a plugin for Gimp:


But I'd really like to be able to use these filters from Python if possible.

For anyone who doesn't know, Filter Factory files are generally known
as Photoshop filters, but they're super easy to create and there's
lots and lots of them available for free online.
