Cool stuff

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.
