Thanks for the kind words!

I've been thinking about it. It is, in fact, all organised internally
into plugins, so it would be easy to do. The biggest problem is the user
interface; right now the menus are defined in one huge structure, and
there's a requirement that every menu item has a unique accelerator key
(within that menu). Handling multiple plugins means I can't guarantee
that any more, and I haven't come up with a decent alternative user
