Yeah, something like that =). But also more info about the external
library as a whole (description, etc.) that's also viewable within the
plugin itself. I can search for something and come up with a big list of
libraries, but as an end-user I can't be certain what I've actually
found with libraryx-v0.2.0 and there isn't info that tells me why I
should download libraryx over libraryz that's also in the same list of
results and I can't see the -objects.txt from the plugin so I can't tell
how closely libraryx fits what I actually am looking for (although this
might be mitigated with a library description so I wouldn't actually
need to see the whole -objects.txt within the plugin window or some sort
of popup).
