Introduce a global "third-party" plug-ins folder
Submitted by Michael Schumacher
We are currently seeing some fallout from third-party plug-in packs on some platforms - if those come with (additional) DLL files in the Microsoft windows platform, they got the potential to wreck the whole GIMP installation.
It's likely not trivial for third-party plug-in maintainers to add a new plug-ins directoy and activate this for the user (we might probably want to add API for this, if it isn't there yet).
But we could easily have an empty plug-ins/third-party directory and have that as party of the default setup. This would be a first step in a "we want those plug-ins to go there" approach.
