But then what happens for people who want to compile things in the 
playground which use AnnotationPlugins ? Forgive me if I miss your 
point, I just got out of bed :)

Just some detail about the infrastructure of the annotation plugins :
The "final user" (ie the developper using the plugins) uses a factory 
classes, which will return plugins. Plugins all share a common 
interface, but they don't install any header, you cannot instantiate 
them directly. So you can't just move the File AnnotationPlugin to the 
dialog tree, you need the whole code (and even if you could, the 
resource inspector needs it).
