So we should have an "Are you sure you want to install this 
plug-in?"-popup or what? :)

I don't think viruses will be a problem in practice if we host a 
user-moderated plug-in registry on www.gimp.org for example. We could 
also have support for digital signatures so users can verify that the 
claimed provider of a plug-in is genuine. That way they can restrict 
themselves to providers they trust.

https://addons.mozilla.org/ is a good source for inspiration here.
