What do you mean by plugin?

A filter without plugin supplied will do nothing except pass by all packets, a
plugin like dump for example, will dump all packets into a file. Or other
plugins like a netbuffer plugin, will simply buffer the packets, release
the packets when needed. However, these are my thoughts about the usecase,
there might be more usecase about this.
