I have very strong doubts that allowing layer trees in Gimp-1.4 would 
mean you'd get layer trees earlier than if you'd wait for Gimp-2.0. In
fact I believe it would only mean that you wouldn't see a stable Gimp-1.4
before 2003.

The problem implementing all this in the current code tree is that the 
current code is a mess. The layers dialog is especially messy. So what
we will do is clean up that mess first, then port to GTK+-2.0, then 
release 1.4, then take all the nice new code, add GEGL and PUPUS and 
release Gimp-2.0 shortly after.

Yes, all dialogs and everything else is under heavy development.
