Stars in the sky

This script-fu makes a sky with millions sparkling stars in a new layer. The layer's dimensions, the star's spikes' length and the flare intensity can be changed. The script is based on this tutorial.
This script is useful for create Space Art images, because the stars are convincing.
Good creating !
