They tend to fall into two catagories, drawing a ragged edge as a selection then applying filters or using brushes (and applying filters). The first requires a bit of artistry and the second has photoshop parameters not easily duplicated in Gimp.
Going for the second option, I played around with making some animated brushes which worked fairly well with the eraser tool, jagged but not exactly 'torn paper'
My solution, 'Occams Razor' - simple is best. Two large 'torn edge' brushes to use with the eraser tool. One vertical and one horizontal made from genuine torn paper which I scanned. Scale them up or down and nibble away at the edges. For an angled brush there is the brush-transform script, (much adapted by various people) If you hunt through the 'meet-the-gimp' forum, its there somewhere.
a sceen shot of what you might expect.
If you want to use the brushes I made & the brush-transform script they are on my rapidshare account.

The brushes go in your local brush folder and the script in you local script folder.
Remember that the brush is not really a brush, it is a 'stamp' to be used with the eraser tool.
