I think the paths option is only a function of the developers version of
gimp 1.2.x. Yes Gimp has shortcut functionality too, the key shortcuts are
listed on menu items when you right click on any image. Its also possible to
reassign these shortcuts. From memory you press the keys you want to assign
after highligting a particular menu item
