Plasmoid

A plasmoid is the combination of files that go into creating a plasma plugin. This includes:

- metadata (e.g. .desktop files)
- svg images
- configuration definitions (KConfigXT)
- code (either something Kross groks or a compiled c++ library)
- ...

Applet

An applet is the code part of a plasmoid, technically because it provides a Plasma::Applet object. To users, this will be an implementation detail they probably never see.
