[wp-hackers] Plugin main file name

I'm not very familiar with the inner workings of the plugin stuff at  
WP/extend, so I have a question for you all.

I'm creating a "core" file for my plugins that is a standardized chunk  
of common code.  In doing so, it would be handy for me if the main  
plugin file was the same for each plugin.  The _directory_ is  
different, of course, but I want the plugin file itself to be  
plugin_main.php or something like that.

Thus, in wp-content/plugins/...


Is this a bad idea for some reason I don't know about?  If down the  
road I put these on WP-extend, will it screw up updates or auto- 
install or something?
