DCOP scripts an application from the 'outside' -- it's suitable to make two 
apps communicate with each other, or to do things like write the kind of 
scripts one would use ImageMagick for -- batch stuff. 

A script plugin would be the equivalent of Gimp's script-fu, or WordPerfect's 
macro language. Add useful functions from within an application. And while 
script-fu isn't accessible from within the Gimp -- you need to open an editor 
and things -- a scripting facility is only really useful when you can access 
the scripts from within the application, like with Nedit.
