In general, yes.  There are thousands of plugins for WordPress and  
announcing every single one here would gum up the works.  But when a  
plugin is of wide appeal or of specific interest to the wp-hackers  
crowd, I don't see a problem with announcing it.  WP-Medic is like a  
hackers toolkit, which makes it pertinent to what we do here.  I also  
announced my WordPress 2.0.3 Tuneup plugin here, because at the time  
there were several seriously annoying bugs in 2.0.3 that would not be  
fixed until 2.0.4, which was several months off, and the plugin fixed  
those bugs.  I thought long and hard before posting it, because I  
didn't want to seem like I was hijacking the list for self-promotion,  
but I figured it was of general interest.
