It makes sense for our product vision and there is nothing technically
difficult about it, assuming there is a library around that does the
grunt work, so yes eventually GIMP will be able to do this. The usual
disclaimer still applies: If you want to make sure this happens, help us
with it. Right now there are no work planned explicitly for this.

If someone writes a plug-in for it, then yes. Nothing the current
members of the core team plans to do though AFAIK.
