Stage 1 of tool plug-ins is complete.  That means that loadable modules 
can be used as tools.  An example plug-in (just the color picker hacked to 
be a plug-in instead of a builtin) is available at
That file should be untarred in your app/tools directory.

Now comes the more difficult part -- writing an out-of-process componant 
that uses the gimpwire protocol and can load these modules and run them. 
This means that the internal api has to have the same function names as 
the plug-in api, or the adapter plug-in needs to have functions in it that 
translate the internal api to the plug-in api.

Sven, Mitch, what do you think?
