In theory your plug-in could implement the quit method and that method
should then be called by GIMP when it quits the plug-in on exit. In
practice though this is not what the core does. Instead it will kill the
plug-in without prior notice. See the discussion in
http://bugzilla.gnome.org/show_bug.cgi?id=8141 (that's our oldest still
open bug report btw.).

So, no, what you are asking for is not possible. But, yes, we would
appreciate if someone came up with a well-designed proposal on how to
solve this problem.
