Johan, hello? :)

Yep, and I've seen crashes.
lpe-boolops must wait for 0.48, imho.

Well, it is mentioned in Cedric's book on Inkscape already :)
Please don't wait for a comment from me when making an LPE "official" or
not. (please do commit a testcase to the testsuite!!!)
If I don't have something to add for the discussion, I won't write :-)
Just make sure the LPE is useable and try to look into the future to see
whether the effect will become redundant or has to be changed
significantly in a newer version of Inkscape.
I disabled many LPEs because they were buggy, hard to use, unfinished or
just untested. Make advice is to make sure all "official" LPEs do well
on those criteria.
