All data in Gimp-1.3 is already derived from a common object and is
handled equally. Dialogs to handle the data share almost all of their
code, so the user interface for all data objects is consistent too.
I strongly discourage you however from trying to work with current 
gimp from CVS HEAD. It should become useable again in a few months.
