The menus are defined in XML files which bind code-defined actions
to menu items. This stuff if fully introspectable and an experienced
GIMP coder can hack up a usable menu search in one day. Hardly a GSoC
project that would keep a new GIMP hacker busy for longer than two

Tumbs down from here.

As to creating menus by scripting, I really don't see what would be
the purpose of that. The way we construct menus is completely to
GTK+ standards, with some GIMP specific additions. Overriding menus
from scripts feels like over-configurability to me and hardly like
a way to foster usability.
