I would strongly recommend that you start with something easier.  The
brush-tool handling code is probably the most difficult to understand
of anything in GIMP.  If you don't believe me, look at app/paint/gimpsmudge.c,
where most of the relevant code for the smudge tool is located.

That being said, I just did a little experiment:  I inserted   

     brush_core_class->handles_changing_brush = TRUE;

as line 95 of gimpsmudge.c -- this is enough to enable the animation.
The smudge tool seems to work that way, but the result does not look
like a smudge to me.  It may still be useful.

Best wishes,
