They are scripts. I am actually glad that the days of coding in C are past me :-) I looked at the code for some plug-ins, and I decided I'd rather not do that! Also, actually, I prefer scripts, as I can move them from machine to machine without a need to recompile (not on all my machines I have a build environment). They seem preferable - to install them, you just drop them into place!
I actually think that the combination of a number-crunching core written in C, and control scripts written in interpreted, high-level, languages, and consequently easy to install/modify by users, is a very good paradigm. As a user, I am much more likely to tinker with simple, self-contained scheme scripts, than with .c stuff that needs a whole build environment to compile.

Not that it would make much of a difference. Except that plug-ins often offer a nicer UI with preview. Sven
