We still don't have the capability to hook scripts to menus, which in
fact could be quite interesting,
like having scripts to send pcbs to board houses easily.

but my plan is to have the menu/toolbar hooks:


  * KiCadPlugin
  *  /|\
  *   |
  *   |\-FilePlugin
  *   |\-FootprintWizardPlugin
  *   |\-ActionPlugin

* FootprintWizardPlugin is what we already have,
* but then ActionPlugin  (or something similar) mission is that: menu
bar, toolbar,
* FilePlugin could let us to load/save file formats (via IO_MGR) with
script files.

Then we could also add some plugins for mouse context, etc.
