How about something that could connect to the plugin registry from within 
Gimp so users could see all plugins availiable, get a description, and 
install plugins they might want by just clicking a button. 

Being a newbie I'm not even sure really where to begin but maybe with a 
bit of direction I could attempt something like that. I know I could 
probably do it in Perl but that would probably be a bit slow.
