CSS files go into cache -- is it really such a problem in that
regard? just askin'.
My Pull-quotes plugin has an option to "not link CSS". It is quite
simple to add such an option -- add the settings, and then wrap the
CSS hook in an if( $setting ). I actually did it at the request of a
user. Took me five minutes.
I think this is a matter of education more than throwing out more hooks.
I may just feel another article coming on.... ;-)
