Replace with tile filter?
Ok, long story short, I wish to take an image made of 16x16 squares completely filled with one color and replace all squares of that same color with a 16x16 tile. Is there any plugin/filter/feature that could do this?

RE: Replace with tile filter?
You don't need a script for this...
- add a layer below the squares
- Bucket-fill with pattern using the tile
- In the layer with the squares, make the squares of a given color transparent

Several ways to do this last operation, depending on complexity/quality:

Simple way (which may be sufficient):
- Use the color selector to select the color
- [delete]

Advanced way (may give better results on the edges):
- Color/Color to alpha and use the color of the squares to remove
