So do I, I'm holding the record in things one have to learn :-).

Not really, plug ins are plain vanilla dlls in WIN and anything similar
for MAC AFAIK.
So every C compiler, that is able to compiles a 32 bit dlls and
to link Windows resources is all you need and all you can use.
There is a free GNU Compiler, Borlands C++ 5.0 should be quite cheep,
and if you are lucky, you may find an old MSVC 4.xx second hand for some
In my opinion the problem is rather the time, or the manpower
you have to invest to get a certain result (the filter).
For professional work you have to think economical,
if you can do 80% of all filters with FIFO/FM in 1/4 the time,
you'll do it that way.

I'm with you in this point, my opinion is, if one is not particularly
interested in C programming, there is no reason to try it,
(except you are looking for a new, exciting hobby)
cause it would take a while to find a filter that you can not
realize in FIFO/FM.
And with just a humbling SDK sample and good ol' Petzold it
will take you probably 10 month before you see your first filter.

Here are two other sites with links to CG/Image processing stuff,
the second is quite slow.

Great idea! And the filter looks good.

what do you mean by contrast autostretch?
