You could mirror Android in another way.  In the viewer, you could have an
Intent to open radar (for example).  A TP radar could register with the
viewer that it has the capability of providing the radar Intent.  Then, the
next time the user uses radar, a pop up asks which of two-or-more plugins
should be used to do the work.  (In Android, you get pop-ups asking, for
example, which of two-or-more cameras should be used.)

Android doesn't really have plug-ins.  Instead they have a standard way for
separate processes to communicate.
