Sorry, I'm not following you. Are you suggesting that we create a 
different plugin for every use case? Surely, a single configurable 
plugin that covers the majority of use-cases would be more sensible.

Sure, there may be advanced use cases requiring editing of stylesheets 
and the like, but that it poweruser stuff. For the maojoority of users a 
configurable plugin would be just fine.
