Hi Eric,

I'm afraid that this has been suggested, but without being recieved 
with much enthusiasm (in fact Manuel only did the plugin support that 
is currently there due to popular demand). Perhaps someone can figure 
a way to make a "plugin manager plugin" so once this has been 
installed (the hard way), any additional plugins can be installed 
through the GUI?
