Sakaguchi? Souichi Takashige is the guy AFAIK.

Rhetoric is counterproductive to getting anything implemented, as Bill
says. Work is relevant. Your work. If you want it, take responsibility
for making it happen.

No, it is not going to be available in 2.5, unless you fix the patch
or persuade Souichi Takashige to do so.
The patch required a lot of tweaking to apply successfully, and must
now account for Alexia Death's new brush dynamics system.
Nobody ever updated it, probably because it was so hard to patch
initially that virtually no-one actually got to try it out.

As above, yes if you or Souichi Takashige do it, otherwise no.

Importance is a personal thing and GIMP is short on developers, so,
getting any given feature implemented depends mainly on a person
considering it important enough to do the work necessary to implement
it properly.
