Sure, I can see this as feasible to the extent that these new plugins can 
offer their own dialogs and functionality.  I'll redo the linefit's current 
dialog in a bit.  The dialogs can be customized to the plugin in a much more 
concrete way as we'll no longer have to rely upon a generic xml file to 
describe the plugin's parameters.

As for consolidating the current fit plugins, I'd need some time to study all 
of the current plugins.  This might be faster for someone else to look at, 
but we'll see.  I'm going to do the cross power spectrum plugin next just to 
reassure myself that everthing is working correctly...
