I'll agree our structure is intimidating, and that Aaron's diagram
helps a lot.  But, I think our src tree is much easier to
comprehend/dive into than, say, f-spot's (which Stephane is in the
middle of fixing):

Extensions in trunk are done quite differently than stable's Plugins
because we now use Mono.Addins.  Most of the existing plugins haven't
been ported yet (Aaron ported a skeleton of the notification plugin)
so feel free to dive in and document the process.
