Personally, I want everyone to use whatever they want to.  We are all  
grown adults and the source is all there. What I do want to do is make  
it easy to do and easy to distribute.

But until there is a real API for this kind of thing, then changes in  
the GUI could break the plugin.  Since you can do a lot with 10-20  
lines of code, I don't think that such breakage is a big deal.
