The main thing lacking for stuff like this is an elegant way of passing
stuff like the filename to the plugin so it can load it.  The "string
ports" extension will work for this though, it's just a bit kludgey
(it's basically a stop-gap).

We need a good message/RPC system, basically, for quite a few things.
Something like OSC but a bit more flexible (or just OSC itself is an
option as well).
