Minimal Python plugin

This is a minimal python plugin for GIMP. In contrary to gimpfu-based ones, these do have the functions also available in C plugins (query, init, run, quit) and can (actually, have to) use GTK+ directly to create a user interface.

I've attached an plugin, which does only define what is needed for a plugin (query, and the functions to be used). 99% of all python plug-ins will most likely follow this structure.
