Ross Gardler has never claimed to be the "inventor of the plugins 
architecture". I reused much code from within Forrest (as does the 
dispatcher) and I asked for feedback and guidance from the community (as 
did you).

For the record, the plugins architecture is the invention of the 
community, not Ross Gardler.

-1 it *implies* ownership, even if that is not the intention.
