Discontinuing support for plugin model?

as you can probably tell from my previous posts, we have started cleaning up our codebase. In this process:

Does anybody still use the plugin api for VCC? Otherwise, I would happily remove it and simplify our control flow.

Hi Stephan,

There are fuzzy plans on my side to somehow, someday, try to use the plugin API to do some source-level inference, and automated boiler-plate ghost code generation. I wouldn't worry too much about it if you really want to simplify the control-flow, though.

If you do end up removing the plugin API, could you just make sure that there is a clean interface to access the AST and re-import it later on?
