What about those of us that only use a single file?  My little plugin is 
just a single little file, no .zip or distribution.  Is there a "simple" 
variation on this, or should I plan on building a "distro" for my stuff?


Honestly, this does seem like a bit of overkill, and even a slight 
deviation from the "metadata in comments" methodology most of us are 
used to in style.css and our plugins.

But that's just my $0.02.  I understand the need for more metadata on 
bigger plugins that *are* going to be distributed as .zip/.tar.gz files.
