I generally agree about plugins on RAAA. But there are at least two
that are directly related to core functionality, the random folder
advance thing and properties, some music formats are handled by
plugins too, like midi and mikmod. I don't think any of these require
a complicated keymap, most of them probably just use lists anyway.
Some people might like pictureflow too.
