True.  An example of why the plugin can be useful: it allows to
conveniently write temporary scripts and execute them immediately.
Also, with the plugin you can open your script when you need it, and
the script won't hang in the "Send selection to..." menu.

By the way, it seems "Send selection to" has been available for a long
time and even before than the original author wrote the Mini Script
plugin (at the beginning of 2009).
