Why would you want to use C, when you can use Vala? Plugins heavily rely on inheritance and interfaces, it'd be quite a pain having to implement everything in C with the boilerplate GObject code.

the answer to that is quite simple, i know c python and php and struggle enough with the varying syntaxes so do not want to make my life any more complicated, so if i can write plugins in one of those i will if not i will not :)
I like the program but there are a few plugins i would like to see one for connecting to ftp and another for opening connections to a database ideally using mysql workbench and filezilla as i deal with a vast number of server on a regular basis.

Support for Python plugins would be great!
