I think that plugins are always very context specific (i.e. the way
that an application choses to interface with the plugin) - you might
want to look at gedit for examples of python plugins to a C application
(pretty nifty).

ultimately though, you'll probably be working with the GModule api
and inventing something that suits your app's needs.


Note that technical questions about writing gtk+ based apps are
probably better suited for gtk-app-devel-list gnome org, whether
this mail should have been sent there is irrelevent, just pointing
it out for you.
