A few months ago, I outlined possible ways to cut down the startup
time of GIMP. The solution I suggested involves adding configuration
files for the data files which is a prerequisite for a hierarchical
organization of these files. It's basically the first step that needs
to be be taken. Instead of reading the brush files on startup,
populate the brush GimpContainer from a brushrc file. This would be
very similar to how information about plug-ins is stored in
pluginrc. Thanks to GimpConfig, this should be pretty much
straight-forward. As soon as this is done, we can switch to nested
GimpContainers. GimpConfig supports this already, so it's basically
only the user interface that will need to be changed.
