thanks for the answer, it is clear. I do not know the internals of these 
plugins, but porting to libxfce4ui doesn't mean necessarily loosing 
libxfcegui4 and 4.6 support, you can keep both and detect automatically 
or make it configurable. Just thinking... BTW, plugins are working fine 
and added to Tiny Core repository.

Regards... Béla
