I'm not subscribed here yet (too high-traffic) but I will when I get 
broadband connection in a month or two. Please CC me!

I'm writing a wrapper-program for all kinds of archivers, diskimagetools and 
packers (tar, zip, gzip, bzip2, arj, lha together with programs to manipulate 
emulator diskimages like .d64, .adf etc). I want to keep the packer-support 
separated from the main program and keep them in runtime-loadable modules.

Question: How can I make my pythonprogram scan a dir for plugins and make 
them add the needed functionality (=archiver support)?

A simple example would be much appreciated!
