We can't use VIPS in GIMP because we need a dynamic graph.
In practice that also rules out implementing GEGL with VIPS.
Regarding GEGL's performance issues: It's not that GEGL still is slow
because we don't know how to make it faster, there many identified
areas that we know could be improved, it's just no one have had time
to improve GEGL's performance further yet.
Once GIMP 2.8 is out that will change. At least I plan on hacking
a lot on GEGL once 2.8 is out...
