How workable is the 2.x codebase to some sort of modularity, to allow
plugins, a la chrome/safari/firefox?

The problem with the SL viewer being a huge monolithic client is that it
becomes something that does more, on fewer machines, due to memory footprint
and increasing resource consumption.

If the current codebase isnt workable towards allowing plugins, it may be
time to put on the brakes and consider the course.
