This has been proposed quite a while ago. If you search an archive of
the gimp-developer list you should find a discussion on this.

The idea is fine. Firefox's extension update system has a lot of holes
in it, so from an implementation perspective it's not really worth
looking at. Something like Debian's apt is a better inspiriation.

This statement doesn't make sense. What kind of updates do you think
you'll get faster?
