There are plans for adjustment layers but before it makes sense to start
adding such things to GIMP GEGL needs to be more integrated. We would
love getting help here so anything you are able to do that brings us
closer to adjustment layers is appreciated. The hard part will not be to
add adjustment layers once GEGL is integrated, the hard part is actually
getting GEGL integrated in a good way.
I am more than happy to help you get into the code base so you can get
started. I am sure the other devs also will help you out when you ask
for it. For casual discussion it is better if you hang around in #gimp @
irc.gnome.org (my nick is Enselic).
