Sorry, but that is not correct. The text tool does use parasites but
that is about the only similarity with GFig.

GIMP wouldn't get any vector-editing capabilities from that. It would
just be an akward way of having two apps work together without really
talking to each other. There is no synchronization whatsoever. This
holds true for GFig as well and that is why I think the GFig hack is
terrible and I would like to phase it out during the next development
