we are asking for a volunteer to fix the Plug-In Browser for several
years now. The GimpBrowser widget in libgimpwidgets was designed
especially to allow this sort of search interface and all that needs to
be done is to port the Plug-In Browser to it and to extend it a little
so that you can also run plug-ins from it.
Now if you guys would spend less time discussing things that have
already been discussed to dead and would do some coding instead...
