An ack query appears to yield some results:

gimp-2.8.14$ ack -g scissor


See ack ( http://beyondgrep.com/ ). You may also try a full text search (ack -g
only searches inside the filenames).

Note that GIMP's source code is licensed under version 2 or version 3 of the
https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/GNU_General_Public_License which, while being
an open-source licence, imposes some restrictions on what you can and cannot do
with the code.
