So, I found this
and think I am going to get things working.  It turns out that even though
the GIMP installer will let me intall Python as long as PyGTK is installed,
it also needs PyCairo and PyGObject to actually work.  And the confirmation
that it is working is a Python-Fu menu item with an option to launch a
console under Filters.
