[Qgis-developer] Plugins: "standalone" versus more tightly integrated

Hi Tom,

The opt-in approach was for plugin development in general. As long as
the API is there, anyone is free to use it or not. What's done for a
specific plugin - like qgis2web in this case - is up to its developer.

Anyway, for an example of what's possible now, have a look at the globe
plugin which uses the plugin API to register additional pages.
