this would work for the exact use cas at hand.

it doesn't address similar issues such as:

* "how can i ship custom data with my c++ plasmoid in a way that's easy to get 
at" (having a package would solve that)

* "what does a package that customizes a plasmoid like this look like?" (it's 
not really a plasma/applet, is it? imagine if we had 900 comic strip plasmoids 
showing up ;)
