revEnvironmentUserPluginsPath() is indeed the way to locate the user
plugins folder. Note that the location can be changed from the
preferences panel, so there's no absolute location for this. But as
long as you're in the IDE you can call revEnvironmentUserPluginsPath()
and retrieve the current path value. If you're creating a standalone,
of course, all bets are off.

And just because you can return a value doesn't necessarily mean the
folder exists (it's not created by default), so that's something else
you probably want to check for.
