i have been frustrated using the registry.
several times, i downloaded and installed a plug-in, only to find it was
already included with GIMP.
lately, i would like to use snarf to get the plug-in i would like (since
mozilla save seems to save something different than snarf gets) but the
url to the plug-ins are not obvious.
what could be so bad with a place to collect the updated plug-ins?
