However, as much as I like the purely wm-focused plugins that edgurgle has
been working on, I'm inclined to agree.

Usually the way with brand new plugins is that we have to adjust them abit
to be ready for a release, specially with regards to options and strings.
There also aren't any translations ready, though that might not be as huge
a blocker.

I think we could probably sneak this into 0.8.2, though. I don't see a
reason why we can't add plugins that add significant features without
modifying core, in a stable branch. But then it needs to be actively
maintained through 0.8. 

I'm already seeing a shopping list for 0.8.2.
