Is PICA itself deprecated?

I'm reading the docs for pica and see there should be a PluginMain in the code.  However, when I look at the includes in the SDK, I see this PluginMain has been deprecated and replaced by PIChannelPort.  I don't even see access to main() or anything that replaces it.  Has it been completely replaced? 


However, when I look in the examples shipped with the SDK like TextFormat.cpp I see...


DLLExport MACPASCAL void PluginMain (const int16 selector, Format RecordPtr...)


I'm trying to write a very simple plugin that brings up a non-modal window and can send/receive photoshop events like when a new layer is created.  What's the best way to get started with this?
