Thanks for your comments.
I'd like to keep things simple at this stage: what I think we should avoid (and this
is easy to do) is having new plugins going to the Plugins menu, instead of the
appropriate one. Rationale:
* keeping a tidy interface
* make it predictable for users where to find a command.
I suggest to check this for each new plugin, and ask the author to chenge it if
necessary before approval.
All the best.
