For gimp 1.2 you must have X "running", but you do not need X with
video card, mouse and the full pack, VNC or Xvfb are enough. That way
you can run gimp with a fake display and keep it running there, with
server being launched in the same command line (use script-fu for
that) and the rest done via request to server.
The problem is that gimp always uses gtk, and that requires the
display, so no display, no gimp (1.3 can run without display... but
perl has not been updated yet, iirc).
