#170 "plug in hooks" for perl, shell or other scripts


It would be nice to sort/list/display using a custom script.
One example for instance is a security camera program like "motion" for linux will put all the pictures for a event in files called "727-2007-0105-142928-02.jpg" then the next event starts with "728-2007-0105-142928-02.jpg" (first number is the event number, then year-mo,day-time).
The problem here is that the best picture is in the middle of all the pictures for the event (in most cases 30 pictures for a event).
In this case it would be nice to have a display of thumbnails of the "best" part of a event and then you can click on them to be able to see them better and start at that position in the list so you can go backwards or forwards in the list.
There are other uses for a "hook" like this, and if you provided a interface to perl, shell or other scripting languages, it would save you time trying to cover all the special feature requests people ask for.
If you just started with some simple "experimental" interfaces to perl (not covering everything at first) that would be good for now and give people a chance to start writing for the interface.
