Prompted by Stephen's Strider message yesterday:

What do people use in the way of plugin base classes when developing,  
and why do you use what you use?

I'm using Joghn Godley's plugin base class, which I've found really  
helpful. The main issues I've hit is needing one instance of the class  
file per plugin; which makes the Strider thing interesting. I've been  
wondering about creting dependencies in my plugins, so one plugin  
won't work unless you have another installed, but this does seem  
complex and I wasn't sure how to make it nice for the user (however  
with the new built in plugin install and update it seems more possible).
