The only purpose of the plug-in template is to help people that are
trying to create complex plug-ins to get the build system right. It is
complete overkill for 95% of all plug-ins and definitely for any file
plug-in I can think of.
The API reference at http://developer.gimp.org/ is what we should
point developers too. The plug-in template only comes into the game if
the plug-in becomes large.
