if weechat.register(NAME, VERSION, "clean", "description"):
    raise Exception, "foo"

Script is NOT registered after exception arises.
Same statement is valid for die() and perl.
Maybe this way of exception handling is bug, maybe it's feature, I don't know.

This task encourages the introduction of a new function weechat.unregister to the script plugin API, which unloads the current plugin. At the time beeing there is no counterpart to the function weechat.register.

This function would be especialy helpful if a plugin cannot operate correctly due to the lack of a specific requirement.
If a requirement is not met, it should be reported to the user. Therefore the plugin has to be registered in weechat. At this point the plugin cannot be automaticaly unloaded though it isn't of any use.

Here's an illustration with a pseudo-script in python-notation what it could be like:

    weechat.prnt("Requirement <xy> is not met","")
    weechat.prnt("solution: do stuff","")
    weechat.unregister("Plugin has not been registered in weechat")
