Answering myself, just in case someone in the future needs the answer.

Plugins are sorted alphabetically by "label" (7'th argument to gimp_install_procedure), which is the same as "File Type" (i.e. the name you see when you open the "Select File Type" expander in the open image dialog.
So, you can select the default by selecting the appropriate label for each plugin.

When there are several plugins registering handlers for the same file extension, what/who exactly determines who ends up as the default handler?

(I want to be able to force my own preference as to what is the default, without success so far. Tried changing the plugins names, their order in pluginrc - all to no avail)

I tried looking at the code but it's not obvious ...

Thanks, Joseph
