Providing source for a sample tool was supposed to be on the list I sent.
I don't know why I didn't remember to put it on last thing.

While we should have a good specification of the "tool api," not thinking
about plugging issues would be counterproductive.  Many of the existing
issues are related to the nonextensiblity of the current api.

I think that we should get the advice of the win32 developers because of
the braindead behaviour of winbloat's dynamic linker before we move
anything.  Note that tool plugins will need to make calls to
GimpToolModule code and GimpToolControl code and who knows what else.
