I've been thinking about something like this as a part of some "plugin"
ideas I've been writing up, which I'll probably post what I've got
sometime tonight or tomorrow. The main thrust of what I've though of is
a way to have bonobo/dbus plugins launched/exited automatically -
although it could be extended to shared-library plugins, but I haven't
though about that yet.

Basically how UI stuff would work, is that a plugin can ask to have UI
merged using the GtkUIManager and then it can get notified of actions.
This would let plugins add items to the menus (or toolbar if we get

The exact details of how the notification of actions occurs via
bonobo/dbus I'd have to leave to someone who knows more about them.
