This was reason #1 for my complaint about YAPS (yet another plugin system). I 
foresee more and more problems when introducing it, perfoormance being one. 
And you might know that I really *hate* per-case solutions. I beleive in 
global, standardised solutions. Anything else is a hack IMHO. 

So again: Can we not think (i.e. discuss, not code) better solutions for this 
image.inc and its private plugins? Please? Iwhat we have now is better than 
nothing, bu8 it introduces a lot of complex, nonstandard stuff. If we 
continue like this, we *will* lose Drupals best feature: being clean. 

Examples of non-clean parts are: flexinodes plugins, e-coms private plugin 
system, locale.module private code splitting, and now image private plugin 
system. I foresee serious problems, and therefore plead for some thoughts and 
discussions before action.
