Sorry - I did not phrase that very well.
When using the old, unnamed register() parameters, if you leave
'params' empty, the main plug-in function still receives two
parameters - the current image and drawable. Using the new, named
register() parameters does not seem to do this anymore.
No big deal really, but I thought it odd that the behavior would be different.
