Really!?

All I'm seeing that would possibly be relevant is the "External Tools" plugin and the "Python Console". Is this what you're talking about, or do I need to go searching the big ol' internet?

In Arch, you can install a large assortment of gedit plugins like this:

Code:
pacman -S pacman -S gedit-plugins gedit-plugins-extra
Those packages might exist in Ubuntu, maybe under different names, I would try the package manager's serch feature first, like this in Arch:

Code:
pacman -Ss gedit
extra/gedit 2.30.0-1 (gnome-extra)
    A text editor for GNOME
extra/mousepad 0.2.16-2 (xfce4)
    Simple Text Editor for Xfce4 (based on Gedit)
community/gedit-plugins 2.30.0-1
    Set of plugins for gedit
community/gedit-plugins-extra 2.24.1-4
    An unofficial set of plugins for gedit
EDIT: a screenshot (I am using the MurrinaCandido GTK+ theme and Tango icon theme):

I found the "gedit-plugins" package and installed it. Yay! Now I don't have to have a separate instance of gnome-terminal open for compiling!

One thing, though: is there any way of changing the color of the terminal? It's defaulting to a bright orange for me (which happens to be one of my gnome-terminal profile colors), and it's kind of annoying that way. I'm not seeing any way to do it from the Plugins dialog...I suppose I'll either have to find a config file to edit or just live with it...

AFAIK it does not use gnome-terminal.

It actually uses a GTK+ widget called "vte", which is basically an embedded terminal GUI widget. VTE is also used by Xfce Terminal and LXTerminal, and a few others.

I guess there might be a config file or something, I don't know too much about this.

EDIT: I don't know, but maybe gnome-terminal uses VTE?

Somewhat earlier 'emacs' was mentioned.

On the one hand, I'm not an 'emacs' guy, on the other - there is also 'xemacs', i.e. 'emacs' under X.
'xemacs' is quite user friendly, i.e. in addition to regular 'emacs' (arcane) commands there are plain GUI drop-down menues, etc.

'emacs' in its whatever incarnation has quite good syntax highlighting patterns for various programming languages, interface to 'gcc' and GDB and a lot of other goodies.

'emacs' is a world of its own with good interface to "regular" world, and 'emacs' masters can do anything without leaving 'emacs', i.e. they don't even need a separate shell.

There is even an WEB browser in 'emacs', and, of course, Email client(s).
