BTW- Inkscape can use gimp gradients (they are the same format).
Back to the main question, the process for stroking any selection is
to convert it to a path, then stroke that.
It gives results that are always better.
I tried scripting it, but couldn't figure out how to open the stroke
path dialog (or advanced stroke path dialog) from a script.
It would be nice if gimps stroke selection did that internally rather
than thresholding the selection and "stroking" along that.
