I agree entirely.  It is my considered position that the first thing
we should with 1.3 is remove all, or virtually all, of the plug-ins
from the standard distribution.  Moving them to the gimp-plug-in
repository on sourceforge seems practical.  All we need to do is
develop a good installer tool before 1.4 rolls, which will probably be
sometime in 2002.
