That's the theory... let us know if it's not sufficient.
There's a sample plugin included in the released sources, which
demonstrates the use of the interface. (It also demonstrates how to
load a Python interpreter and run a script, so it's a bit hairier
than simply showing off the interface. And probably not thread-safe,
and may have leaks, etc. It's just a quick demo, we don't install it.)
