no, sorry -- I have never used this feature for anything.

I just stumbled over this function (and noticed that it currently leads 
to a crash, see https://bugs.freedesktop.org/show_bug.cgi?id=53681) when 
I checked systematically all dialog windows which have already been 
converted to the new .ui format (Widget Layout). One of these dialog 
windows is the "Insert Plugin" dialog window.

I remember that I wondered (just like Astron) what this "Insert Plugin" 
feature was, what it was supposed to do, etc. In a quick search, I did 
not find any answer. So it may be save just to remove this function 
completely -- which would also obsolete the bug report cited above ;-)

Best regards,
