I am not a programmer, so I may be talking nonsense here. If I 
understand it correctly, the next step would be to translate your 
parser output to calls to the GIMP's Procedural Data Base. 

I guess the easiest way to do that would be to store the output of 
your program as a script-fu script.

The big problem seems to be (to me) matching Photoshop functionality 
with GIMP functionality.
