"However, how does it follow that the answer to this is C++, as the original commentator suggests?"
Where did I suggest that? A big C project that uses GObject is awfully difficult to get into for a newbie.
Heck, I have spent more than once several weeks getting people up to speed with Qt and C++ so they could contribute to Krita (and C++ with Qt is awfully close to Java for a beginner) so I know that "C++" isn't the answer. I think there is no answer for Gimp -- but that doesn't mean it isn't a problem.
Spending that time on beginners has almost always been worth it, by the way, with the newcomers becoming valued members of the development team and producing awesome stuff.
