Not that I'm aware of. I know you can't drop those brush files into GIMP's
brush directories and have them "just work." If a file plug-in exists that
can read those brush files then you will be able to read them in and then
save them into GIMP's native brush file format. But I don't know of any
brush file plug-ins for other application's brushes.

In short, you probably can't. You *might* be able to do so if
1. the developers gave each window a special name of its own and
2. your window manager allows you to save position information about those
specially named windows.
If #1 is true (and I don't know that it is), then in Sawfish (which is
commonly used as the GNOME window manager) you can click on the title bar
of a window (I think it's a right button click) to get a menu. At the
bottom of that menu you have the option of choosing History information to
be saved, such as position and geometry of a window. Select "Save
position". That *might* work. But no promises. Other window managers may
offer similar features, but many do not. Caveat gimper.
