Hi all,
I agree in:
* reducing duplication, and having only one base layer plugin
* adding it to core
* renaming it to be better understandable to users.

So the issues are:
* do we agree that QMS is, from coding point of view, a better candidate
for inclusion?
* are the authors willing to take responsibility for its longer term
maintenance? If not, anyone else is willing to take it?

BTW, there are a number of older plugins adding individual services
(Korea, Sardegna, etc.); it would be good to incorporate these as
additional services too, or stimulate and help original authors to do
that, and deprecate original ones.

I'm available to help with this, if necessary.

All the best.
