Well, I've done some rather esoteric things with it in the past, but 
nothing that would be needed here.  I was just thinking that applications 
like Zope, Chandler et al would sometimes want to know, "what plugin is 
this class/object from?"  But I suppose that they could just as easily 
build that concept explicitly into their APIs.  So never mind that bit.  :)
