The fallback plugin is a old default if a plugin fails to load the fallback plugin will be in its place.
the fallback plugin code could be ignored. Plugin just don't load if it fails. the fallback plugin will never be executed.

but to answer your question:
"this is a fallback plugin"
can mean:
"this is a defalut plugin"
"this is fail safe plugin"
"this plugin will load when other plugins fail"

if its sill unclear let me know.

Can this chunk of code be removed?

Christopher Pax (paxmanchris) said : #3

should I remove it in 0.4 or trunk?

Charles Edward Pax (pax) said : #4

You should remove it from both. When you make the commits add a comment stating that we should test this before the next releases.
