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.
