I'm sorry if my description was misleading.

I'm not writing any plugins. I'm writing a Python library (and scripts
on top of it) that wraps VDR and some plugins (e.g. EPGsearch). The
library currently uses SVDRP and VDR's files to access VDR data. I'm
aware of the RESTful plugin. Using it would be an additional way to
access VDR that could be added later on.

In order to write unit tests for my library, I'm seeking a way to setup
VDR in a well-defined state against which the tests can be run.
