Uhm - xfig?  :-)

Nope sorry, I don't know of other vector tools. I am a happy user of
sketch, and I like it. *shrug*

I don't think that the GIMPs maintainers will accept cludges to the code
that will have to be totally rewritten for 2.0. This goes double since
1.4 is intended to be mainly a cleanup release. If I manage to finish my
new bezier tool (without the support of real vector layers) for 1.4 I'll
be happy.

All the above is IMHO of course.
