I have added some comments to that bug report that you and everyone
else who's asking for pluggable paint tools should read. Before any
effort is spent to build a framework to allow for pluggable paint
tools, I would want you to understand how easily you can add a new
paint tool to the GIMP core. We have put a lot of effort into cleaning
up this code to the point where it becomes trivial to experiment with
new ideas for paint tools. Exporting this API to some sort of plug-ins
or modules would not be impossible but it would be a major effort.
Before this is even considered, I would want to see someone working on
a new paint tool in the core. Before that didn't happen, I do not
believe that there is serious interest in pluggable paint tools.

Seriously, if you have an idea for a new paint tool, tell us about
it. With a little help from me and Mitch you or anyone else should
have the new paint tool added to the GIMP core in less than a day.
