Sorry for the long delay.  I kept telling myself I'd polish it up, test 
it on a the newest RC, write some docs.  But I didn't.  Rather than 
delay more, I'll just link you my plugins as is: undocumented, possibly 
not working with the latest RC.  Sorry.  I hope it's useful.  I'll keep 
it at this url for a month or so:


It's three plugins: one supplies hooks for the other two.

Someday I'd like to polish it up and host it officially with other 
plugins.  (Unless someone else wants to!)
