I have not tried to work with GIMP plug-ins, but it should be possible 
to debug them through Wing's support for debugging externally launched 
code; please see 
http://wingware.com/doc/debug/debugging-externally-launched-code

Are the modules used in a GIMP plugin available as .py files?  If so, 
you probably can add the directory they are in to your project's python 
path.

Thanks,

John
