I put python scripts in ~/.gimp-2.6/plug-ins/.

Best regards,

side excursions into Perl, C and so on.  Given this background which will the
easiest to master for my first plug-in?

The task I have in mind is "gel" text as described in "The Artist's Guide to
Gimp Effects" on page 268ff. I did same for my current project but did not have
much fun going through the 26 +/- steps over and over.
