There is a separate package called gedit-plugins that is maintained by
two members of the gedit team. It contains a charmap plugin too.
I don't know if a Ubuntu package exists for it.
See for more info (we are going to
update it with info on how to install/download the package).

Yep, I mean inserting it in the "Side Pane" of gedit, the one you can
open with pressing the F9 key.

What do you mean? 
If you are speaking about the fact a plugin may require a specific
version of gedit, then there is no way.
We should probably add a "Required" field in the .gedit-plugin file.
Could you please file a request for enh on with your
comments about feature?
