If you dont need to interact with cartographic data, it would be probably 
easier to not make a plugin but simply put a php file in the project's 
htdocs folder.

You can access the cartoclient object like this:

// set the project name
$_ENV['CW3_PROJECT'] = 'your_project_name';
// define the path to cartoweb
if (!defined('CARTOCLIENT_HOME'))
    define('CARTOCLIENT_HOME', realpath(dirname(__FILE__) . '/../../..') . 

if (!defined('CARTOCOMMON_HOME'))
// include the main cartoweb files
require_once(CARTOCOMMON_HOME . 'common/Common.php');
Common::preInitializeCartoweb(array('client' => true));

require_once(CARTOCLIENT_HOME . 'client/Cartoclient.php');
// create a new instance of the cartoclient
$cartoclient = new Cartoclient();
// check if user is allowed
if (!$cartoclient->clientAllowed()) {

// add all the rest of your code here
// you should be able to access all cartoweb plugin, session and so on
