Well, for the time being I haven't found any documentation ...
I'm using a "hand made" string:
'(0 1 1 ... 1 1 0)
There are as many "1"-s as there are centimeters (so that I get a grid
line per every centimeter) ...
The leading and trailing "0"-s are there because I also want grid lines on
the left (top) and right (bottom) borders (otherwise they are not drawn) ...

Thanks for your tip.
Indeed, I opened an emacs editor (x11 window) and I was able to paste
texts marked in this window into gimp ... (and vice versa, too)
