Thanks for the feedback David.  I'll give this adapter idea some more 
thought.  It certainly would be nice to have a way to make plugins 
available to a new release without having to re-release the plugins.  In 
either case, we need to get some 2.1 plugins (such as samples) released. 
  Rather than releasing any 2.1.1 plugins I'll see if we can come up 
with an alternative solution (such as your adapter idea) first.
