As I understand it, this is one of the key features of GEGL, which the article says is the technology underpinning Darktable and should be coming soon to a GIMP near you. The idea is that picture edits are treated as a directed acyclic graph, where the vertices are images and the edges are transformations. It can cache intermediate images to speed up processing, but the basic approach is to store the original image and the transformations rather than the final image.
