The plugin system in Gnucap seems to be working well. You are 
welcome to use it, and any of my code that implements it.

It is based on standard shared object files (.so on Linux, .dll 
on Windows), C++ derived classes, and a "dispatcher". I have 
had it working in the development branch of Gnucap for about two 
years, and plan to make a stable release soon.
