Subject [GitHub] thrift issue #1433: fix plugin.thrift, plugin{,output}.cc to use t_const_val...

Github user chetmurthy commented on the issue:
    I should have added that another reason I want to plugin interface to ocntinue existing,
is that without it, I'd have to invent one, in order to implement the idiomatic JSON wire
protocol that I just wrote.  The Thrift generated-code "contract" doesn't have enough information
to implement things like an idiomatic JSON wire.  Or YAML.  But with extra type-information,
it's a straightforward matter.  And the plugin provides that on-the-nose.
