Well, you can also re-use existing filters.  In fact several hundreds that 
have been written for Filter Factory (not all of which may be useful though) 
and are either in the public domain or otherwise freely available.

MathMap might be the best of all solutions from what I see, but also the most 
complex.  So far, UserFilter seems to be simpler to use for the average 
graphician (I think) - plus it is possible to have filter scripts installed 
in the Gimp's menu (which doesn't seem to be possible with gluas or mathmap 
and which I feel is important for working with a filter that has been created 
with such a tool).

But as you said: It is a different approach...
