Ah, this would be good, thanks Thorsten.

To be honest I lost track of where I was supposed to be working when doing
dispatcher stuff, so continued with 

/trunk/whiteboard/plugins/*dispatcher
/trunk/whiteboard/plugins/*themes

It would be good to have all this stuff merged, then we can look at the
state of the merger and decide if it can go into the release.

Thanks
