Gimp keeps a DB of info about all plugins. In startup all are checked,
if they changed since last time, they are queried, asking them what
they do, and the replies are stored. The regex is used to search in
the DB that stores all the info. Read gimp-procedural-db-query and
gimp-plugins-query in <Toolbox> / Xtns / DB Browser, and guess how the
browser works. :]
