I'm confused -- you say I should pop up a file chooser, then you
say that's not what the PDB is for. Is there a non-PDB way to do
this from a plug-in?

Popping up a file chooser is exactly what I'm trying to do.
But I'd ideally like it to be the gimp file chooser with the image
file types, not a generic GTK file chooser (just for consistency,
because the GIMP dialog is what the user expects to see elsewhere
in gimp). That's why I was asking for an API to do that.
