the main reason is that AFAIK gtk+-perl hasn't been ported to GTK+-2.0
yet. We will most probably get Python support in GIMP-1.4, so perhaps
that would suit your needs better than Script-Fu (which will
eventually get ported to Guile or another Scheme interpreter).

I agree and I think that GIMP-Python (and probably Script-Fu) should
as well be separate packages.
