Another thought:
cleaning up the menu tree is independent from preserving plugin API 
compatibility.

Our van gogh could be sliced into two plugins: one plugin which installs just
the pdb functions (and resides in GIMP core), and a second plugin which resides
in the plugin registry and solely installs the menu entry.

Makes sense?!?
