Right; as a dependency. There's not any requirement to use Qt
calls in new plugin code; though you'd still need access to data type
definitions like QString, etc. Basically, without using Qt and in the
absence of Myth API bindings for other languages, a plugin would be
limited to a couple of entry points that "do their own thing",
completely independently of the rest of Myth. That being the case, it
would make more sense to spawn it as a separate application instead of

I'll second that!
