it will not be that different. At the moment we are refactoring all the
code around the GIMP-1.0 core to make it more hackable and more functional.
The result shall be called GIMP-1.4. That should give us a nice code-base
that allows us to replace the core functions which something based on
GEGL without the need to change the framework around the core. So, if 
anyone wants to hack on GIMP-2 now, she either should help with 1.4 or
work on GEGL, the PUPUS rendering pipeline or other integral parts of the
GIMP-2.0 core.
