Install them on machines or put some kind of site to share plugins? I
hope the later, to install there are main ways, another new would be
waste, I think.

Sorry, I could not resist, but why oh why the old Law of Software
Envolopment is becoming something like a Law of Black Kore? Does code
strech when near one? Where is the Events Horizont?

IMO software instalation should be left to software instalers...
otherwise I want RedCarpet to have Layers, Channels and Paths and 8,
16 and float RGB support. ;P
