It's just a matter of doing in erlang what I did in the script,  
finding out how to extend the load path. Hopefully my implementation  
shows how conceptually trivial it is. I agree with Noah about the  
configuration issue. Probably the only trick is that you need to load  
the config to find the plugins and then load more config from each  

I need to focus on the transactional _bulk_docs issue, and then the  
filename patch - that's a 0.9 blocker.
