The ecommerce package might be a good source of inspiration for this.
It doesn't use plugins but keeps in-line with the Drupal hook system,
meaning other modules can tap into the ecommerce API. There's an api
for products, payments, the checkout process, etc. I also opted to
use *.module files instead of includes with the intentions being that
any component of the ecommerce package could also be used by itself.
For example, I just want a shopping cart because I already have
another product creation system.
Hope that helps!
