Agreed - making a monolith is not the Unix way.

But allowing programs to work together in a convenient
and efficient manner is very much the Unix way (c.f. pipelines!!).

I would be interested to have Hugin able
to INVOKE a separate program, with command line arguments,
as an importer, in the same way that it already does for
both control point detection and blending.

Unix being Unix, the "external" program could in fact
be a wrapper script, calling an actual program
with an arbitrary command and/or list of control/parameter files.
