This sounds like a very worthwhile addition to Squirrel. I'm currently=20
starting to write the developers guide for squirrel so unfortunately at t=
moment the best way of seeing how to write plugins etc. is to look at the=

but its somewhat out of date.
If you have any questions just send them to the dev list and either Johan=
should be able to answer them for you.
