Unlikely, unless somone provides a patch. The WMF loader plug-in is
simple. It uses libwmf to load the file and as far as I can see, the
libwmf library always returns an RGBA buffer. So you might even have
change the library first.

Frankly speaking, GIMP seems like the wrong tool for the job. It was
designed to detect file formats.
