What about renaming it to something more linked to QtCreator, like QCJS
aka "QtCreatorJavaScript", QCP (QtCreatorPlugin), QCPJS, ... ?
(with my excuses in advance to your wife of course ;)

Sure, I see your point. I however think that files looking like JavaScript
should always stick with a .js extension . Just some examples: it allows to
open these with correct syntax highlighting in any editor, use specialized
JavaScript tools to generate/manipulate it, ...
What about using some easy convention, like for any plugin in "DIRECTORY",
if a "DIRECTORY/DIRECTORY.js" file exists, assume it is a plugin ?
