  Ok that can be done.  I've been wondering how installation of the plugins 
will happen though.  Will they go into a system-wide directory?  This will of 
course require root access.

   As discussed previously, using a .desktop file is not desired by the plugin 
developers.  What do you think of the idea of having an installation tool in 
kst that would actually create a .desktop file and install the plugin 
according to KDE standards?  This assumes that there is not already a 
standard installation location for this plugin format, however.

   Also, do you happen to have the source to a plugin handy?  It would be good 
to have a demo plugin to work with.
