Could you tell us a bit about why you think they should be included in 
mainline, instead of existing externally in another collection (eg, 
Guifications Plugin Pack) or as standalone? I had a quick glance at some 
of the source. Would seem to me you're adding some API capabilities in 
but there's no commenting love.

Whilst I'm happy to believe you intend to maintain the code through 
major updates, this information would be crucial for carrying the work 
forward in event of an unfortunate set of circumstances leading to an 
inability of you to continue working on the plugins.

These are just some random thoughts I had when noticing it appears no 
one had yet replied to your email.
