Indeed, the Paths itnernals and UI was completly revamped on GIMP 2.0,
but the API never catched on.
There is no way to work properly with multple component paths with the
current API, as you had found out.
I cannot give further advise at gthis moemnt, but to ask politely for
you to take a look at the source. Tehre is a bug report dealing with
this in GIMP's bugzilla, but there is nothing serious there.
Apart from that, we have to wait for Simon to step him, and give some
hints (he redesigned the vector internals for 2.0). Either way, you
will be better able to follow his suggestions if you had already
taken a look at the source.
