Thanks a lot to Steiner for his reply!

While a "reverse PDB" might be nice, as an initial attempt could we get by
with something much simpler and more hardcoded that would only address
Script-Fu for example?  In saying that, please take into account that I'm
just getting started as a gimp developer, and really don't have a very good
idea yet of just exactly what the PDB is all about.  But I'd hate to see a
good idea go out the window just because we wanted to shoot for the moon and
make things much more complex than is really necessary for a preliminary

Unfortunately, I don't have enough gimp knowledge yet to have a feel for
what it would take to convert interactive actions in gimp to the
corresponding Script-Fu statements.
