OK, I see your point.
But maybe you could answer a question I've been trying to figure out
concerning the plugin discussion here. I can understand in a browser
how plugins can be inserted in the stream of data and act as a filter
for specific file types. Would this mean that the SecondLife plugins
would be inserted in the message stream between the client and server?
Or would they work off of the local cache? Or would they reference a
class that had accessors for each of the global variables?
