I think if we wait until October we'll have an usable user-interface and then 
more people will just play around with it and actually use it

Why would I write a plugin for an application that isn't usable? Give them a 
nice main-program to play around with and then the plugins will shoot out of 
the ground like mushrooms after a rainy day.

Besides, if someone is interested in Gideon he can grab a CVS version (most 
developers should be able to do that) and if someone is just interested in 
Gideon's look we have to present a neat app so that he gets excited.

We proclaimed often enough that Gideon nicely supports cool plugins, let's 
deliver a Gideon for which it is worth writing plugins for!!
