yes, this is a solution, I feel that with over 6000 downloads it is
probably useful for somebody to study how a minimal plugin does work.

But HelloWorld is also used as a test plugin for the plugin repository:


I collected a lot of HelloWorld versions that I use to test version
conflicts, metadata parsing, UTF8 support and a lot of other errors that
appeared in the past.

But I'm fine to leave it unpublished, I can re-publish it when testing.
