Well, I'm not sure that the dropshadow plugin cannot be an ordinary filter
after all -- just like the rounded corners feature, but in the end, if it
is something that works on a whole layer instead of a rect, it should probably
be in a submenu of layers. But leave that to me: I'll keep the menu's organized,
as long as you do the complicated bit of getting the code working :-)
