That's the directory where you can put a service location plugin, but  
by default we don't build and install any; there's just the compiled- 
in algorithm.  There is a sample plugin that loads a Python  
interpreter, reads a Python script and invokes a Python function to  
do the work, but it's a little fragile, not thread-safe, etc., and  
compiling it requires changing the top-level configure script.  It's  
only intended to be a sample of how a plugin could be written (if you  
felt like using one that would allow for easy scripting in an  
interpreted language).
