i for one particularly love this idea. i think there should be a way for  
the default LL issued viewer to be a plain jane for every user client. but  
allow third party devs to create plugins that do whatever they want. the  
idea of the radar and ao are amazing. but dont stop there. there are tons  
of things that average users DO NOT use in the client already. LL could  
simply remove those items and offer them as plugins. i am for this idea of  
modularity 100%. my only question is where do we start?
