I would love to read it. If it doesn't get through, then send it to me and
I'll see about implementing it along with the other suggestions. I think
the more options we give, the better.

During some internal debate (with myself), I came to the conclusion that
without a major refactor of the plugin system, it would be impossible to
use __().

The commit team does not seem keen on that solution or any solution which
involves hooks, and reloading of the plugin description. It will also have
to not have any major refactoring of how the plugin system functions.
