I see a lot of Gnome programs that support plugins, and they all seem to have a very common interface. Is there a library available for Gnome apps to allow easy exposing of an interface to external plugins? If not, should there be one? Is it even possible/feasible?

Thanks.

No (at least I don't think so). But all use gmodule, from glib, a portable abstraction for dynamic library loading.

Thanks, GModule looks pretty decent.
