group together wavelet-based plug-ins
we could gain some speed for multiple wavelet-based plugins, if the transform and the inverse transform would only have to be done once.
so create two plugins waveletin/waveletout (along the lines of colorin/colorout), which do wavelet decomposition and synthesis.
local contrast, denoise, bloom, etc could then all use the common wavelet decomposition.
this is a task, as it involves some uncertainty if it would actually be useful/feasible at all, or if parameters of the wavelet decomposition would be affected by the plugins, so re-use would be impossible.

Not a good idea.
(15:53:57) hanatos: i think you always want to modify your edges on a per-module basis
(15:54:04) hanatos: don't think it's a good idea in the long run
(15:54:09) hanatos: maybe refactoring some wavelet code
