Sure. With PDE, one of the ways that you can build an entire 'product' (one or more plugins/bundles + all the startup config info, etc) is to use what PDE calls a 'product configuration file'. This file usually has the extension '.product'. For example, here's  a product configuration file for the hello world host that uses zeroconf for discovery and ecf generic for distribution. Here  are several different product configs for the hello host...that show different combinations of discovery and distribution providers.
I was remarking that one thing the template could do is to create a product configuration for you...so that you could then export the newly created host or consumer to create an easily built and deployable application. It could also get fancy and let you select which discovery and/or distribution provider to use for the product.
That's what I meant by that comment.
