GEGL supposedly has quite readable code that is running and works,
modifying that code base to deal with this properly will most probably
been seen as more lasting contributions than changing code that
eventually only will live on machines running legacy 2.4 series GIMP
due either to low performance hardware or depending on legacy behavior
like having an indexed mode.

The time is now, and GIMP will soon enough start needing more and more
adjustments/specialized operations to be implemented. More people
looking at the code, and complain when things are difficult to
understand, namings of APIs could be changed; will help getting the
GEGL code base and APIs into sufficiently good shape for the 2.5
development cycle of GIMP.
