OK, I've made some changes to the spec to allow progress reporting and
to not specify either glade or gtkbuilder (pages just pass back a widget
object).  There hasn't been any major outcries over the spec, so I'm
going to look into implementing it.

I think my proof-of-concept will be to convert the mythbuntu frontend
into a plugin, just because it would represent the most ambitious sort
of thing we would want to allow in a plugin (multi-page, replaces core
pages, changes install logic).  I should encounter useful difficulties
by doing that.

Unless people (Mario?) are changing the mythbuntu frontend a lot now.
Else I can just look at trying to convert the core pages which would
also stretch the spec, I imagine.

I'll continue to update the spec, so subscribe if you're particularly
interested.  I'll also keep a branch going: lp:~mterry/ubiquity/plugins
