That may be so, but I refuse to work on anything to promote plugin-
writing until I see some people actually making good use of that
feature.  If only to get a confirmation that the current plugin system
is usable and preferable to simply hacking the code and making a branch.

See, every time someone announced a plugin, it turned into a branch
instead, which later got merged into master.  And to be honest, that's
how I prefer it.
