I just wanted to point out that the 2.0 API is completely
backwards compatible from 2.2 to 2.0. That means that you can
simply copy the old 2.0 gfig from lib/gimp/2.0/plug-ins to 
lib/gimp/2.2/plug-ins and it will work just fine. 

For a user installation, you might want to check, but I believe
that plug-ins in the $HOME/.gimp-2.2/plug-ins directory are
loaded before the global ones, so copying
lib/gimp/2.0/plug-ins/gfig there would do the same job for an
unprivileged user.

Personally I'm happy to see someone working on gfig. I wasn't
aware dindinx was working on it, and given the track record he's
built up, I'm sure that the plug-in will be very stable and much
more usable in short order.
