1.4.0. Gimp follows the same numbering scheme as the Linux Kernel and
2.0 is reserved for some major things that have not yet happened.

Yes. The current development version already is.

I think that the basic infrastructure for calling PDB-Functions
basically is the same as in earlier Gimp Versions. Some PDB-Functions
have been renamed so you might need to fiddle a bit.

Look at the existing bindings and the libgimp documentation.

Yes. However, this will not happen for 1.4.

I am not really familiar with FilmGimp's Frame Manager, so I am not
really sure what stuff would be necessary to do. However, Gimp
Plugins/Extensions can do a lot and I think there is a chance to do
this that way.
