I would assume that the people who want pictureflow on a DAP will also
work on RaaA. I personally don't use it, so I won't argue that it's
critical :)

I think credits is a bit different though. I think it's fairly reasonable
to interpret GPLv2 2c as saying you're not allowed to drop the credits
plugin, but even without that I think we really want to have that list
accessible. Of course temporarily breaking things during development
shouldn't be a problem, but the credits functionality will have to be
restored in some way fairly soon I'd say.

What happens if plugins are built assuming a small screen? Will they
break horribly, or just show up awkwardly in a corner?
