Reading the code, there are two ways to register plugins (files *.gpr.py):
plg = newplugin() plg.<property> = <value> …
register internally calls
newplugin and does the conversion between both forms.
About half plugins use the “verbose” declaration and the other half the “concise” declaration. The “concise” one is labelled a convenience function in a comment.
Which one is recommended for preferential use?
What is the advantage of one over the other as they are strictly equivalent in their effect?
