Per simultaneous user using the service I expect that you would have
to donate ~1ghz of processing power, 256mb of memory and a couple of
gigs of swap space.

But do note, I do not see this as a direction it is likely the current
set of GIMP/GEGL developers neither should nor have strong desires to
be directing development efforts, thus even thinking about gathering
resources for a non existent vapour project is extremely premature.

If someone has real plans for a system using AJAX or an other form of
rich client image manipulation/processing application, I'd suggest
they'd outline a road map or general plan for what they'd want to
achieve and I'll be willing to comment on it on the GEGL-development
mailing list. On the GEGL mailing list I'd outline what bits might be
missing in GEGL to achieve the goals as well as give some feedback on
the feasibility of the concrete plans.
