I've started to play a little bit with Gideon's plugins lately, and just for 
fun I ported Kate's fileselector as a Gideon plugin.  Yo can find it at:

Is this something that people might find it useful ? I hope so ( at least it 
was for me ). I put an indication of the original author of the Kate 
fileselector in the copyright notice, hope that's enough ( I just did the 
port to learn Gideon's plugin methodology and I'm not claiming ownership / 
creativity of the original idea ).

On another topic, I'm starting to work a little bit on another plugin ( one 
that'll interface heavily with ctags ) and I was wondering what's the state 
of the ctags support on Gideon. I was not able to make it work ( loads the 
ctgas file correctly. and inserts the tags in the dictionary, but it's not 
able to run a match against anything ).

Is somebody the maintainer of this portion ( or is somebody working on addidn 
something new to Gideon instead of te currentctags support ) ? I'm very 
interested in doing a generic symbol-browser/cross reference matcher plugin ( 
if you've used Visual Slickedit before you'll know what I mean ).

Also, can somebody please explain me the relationship between ctags and the 
class parser/browser that's already in place ? I haven't looked at it yet 
very much in detail, but it seems that we have two symbol detection 
mechanisms in place ?

Thanks for all the input, I hope to be able to contribute more and more as 
the time pass by ( as I get more familiar with Gideon ). Thanks for buiding a 
very nice and expandable framework.
