I strongly disagree. From a usability perspective this is nonsense. It might
be nice for a user to know whom to blame for the script (but the language
does not help much), but otherwise the user just has to memorize one fact

It's difficult enough to remember wether a plug-in belongs to (e.g.)
xtens/render or xtns/draw. Having to remember the language in which the
plug-in is written (which means _nothing_ to most users) is only an
additional burden.

While this is mostly true, some perl scripts are very useful to all users.
the problem is that the expensive of installing gimp-perl to "just" get a few
standard plug-ins is relatively high.

But there are worse things than that...
