How is that different from keeping the plug-in in the GIMP CVS tree?
The idea is to keep plug-ins that are maintained outside the GIMP tree
outside the GIMP tree. Now if you move them into a gimp-plug-ins
module, that's essentially the same as moving them into the gimp
module. It makes it more difficult for the plug-in maintainer to
continue to work on his/her plug-in and puts more work on the GIMP
development team.

Of course, if a plug-in developer wants to use CVS or Bugzilla we
should offer our help. And of course we should be willing to out
packages up on ftp.gimp.org and announce releases on www.gimp.org.
