I'm -0 on this proposal, mostly because the freetype plugin 
intrinsically depends on the rest of freetype so you can't load or 
generate it without having the rest loaded. Given this, having the 
plugin in VMMaker probably only increases confusion since now there is 
the plugin, but not the rest of freetype. I think it would be better if 
there were a canonical repository for freetype (incl. the plugin) that 
were accessible to other developers.
