This is a patch to display viewer category plugins in the plugin menu.
The plugin can be executed alone without selecting other files.

However, plugins other than the text viewer plugin cannot execute alone.
This task depends upon

Reason for closing:  Rejected
Additional comments about closing:  I agree with domonoky... also, why would you want to open the viewer plugin without choosing a file to view?

Wouldnt it be better to move the text viewer to the plugin/apps directory, and correct the entry in viewers.config ? Like it is done with md5sum and the text_editor.
This way you can still use the textviewer standalone or as a viewer, but dont present all other viewer plugins to the user.
