Just an observation from the peanut gallery: as I understand it you have
created a more elegant solution to the core of a plugin system.  Would
it, therefore, make any sense, rather than building your own plugin
system from scratch, to fit your solution into an existing plugin
system, such as Zplug?

Are there sound technical reasons not to do so, or are you enjoying
building your own and want to continue with it?
