Here's one possible reason:

I was thinking about implementing the GET TRANSLATE command (or adding
the TRANSLATE option to GET), so that  one could import gnumeric files
like this:

GET TRANSLATE  FILE='Book1.gnumeric'

Parsing gnumeric files would need libxml2 and libz  which aren't
generally needed by PSPP, so perhaps the plugin option would be
justified here.

Then people can write a plugin for any kind of wierd file format.
