Among other things the old mail you are linking to proposes to use
Shift-Click in the image to add a control-point. Did you try to Shift or
Ctrl with the Curves tool active and the pointer over the image window?
Looks like there's a status-bar hint missing for this nice feature...
The best way to get any of the other changes into GIMP is to discuss it
here first and then to make a patch that implements it.
