What the heck - I added it as a (very) simple plug-in:
In 2.6. it returns the length of the path on the status bar. I used
gimp_message, so IIRC the location of the message is configurable. It
silently fails if there is no active path - it seems to work OK with
multiple paths, straight lines, and curves. There is no need to
stroke the path.
You will need to have Python installed though...
