In GIMP you will need a data structure to track the traced lines, rather
than having a plugin just draw them on the canvas. You'll probably find
it a lot easier with Inkscape, or with potrace on the command-line
(especially under Linux) because the SVG output has XML elements you can
traverse. But you might alo be able to do the tracing to paths in gimp
and then iterate over the paths using the gimp-get-vector-points and
friends (see help->procedure browser in gimp and search for vector)
