Actually, this may well be solved for GIMP 3.0 - as it will them most
depend on GEGL improvements.
Pippin has detailed the improvements that could be done on GEGL with
regards to speed rendering in a document he posted on Tuesday (I don't
remember if it was to this list):
mostly improvements that would allow the image viewport to be real
time rendered, while the real rendering would happen in background.
