Gimp 2 framework / GStreamer framework merge possible?

I read quite some time ago about the plans for Gimp-2.0. It seemed that it was to be a highly modular and pluggable [streaming] framework which could be used for anything and everything from image editing to image batch-processing to video editing/processing. I was thinking of this the other day as I contemplated the GStreamer framework, and it hit me that merging the proposed Gimp-2.0 framework and the GStreamer framework could be a very beneficial thing to do. When it comes down to it, the goals of the two projects seem very similar, at least as far as the framework is concerned (GStreamer is currently targeted at realtime processing, but the framework wouldn't necessarily have to be used in this way). How far through development is the Gimp-2.0 framework?

What do you all think? Has this been discussed before? How feasible would this be? Would it really be a good thing to do, in terms of capability sharing and approach-unification?

Thanks, Luke Hutchison.

According to Charles Iliya Krempeaux at in his 1 Feb
2002 entry there have been talks between the leaders of the projects. I don't know what has come of it, though.
