When I tried to add a new layer to the image, it did not work when I used the 
filter framework. Also the preview will certainly not work because the 
original layer is not touched. Somehow it just felt wrong to me to use the 
current filter framework which is not really meant for adding new layers.

I am not sure if the plugin should be moved to the layers menu. That is not 
where I would expect something like that. Maybe there should be an Efects 
menu? Or maybe Layers->Efects->add Dropshadow. That also does not seem too 
bad to me.
