There have been some 3rd party solutions for this issue, although I
can't find them at the moment.
I've been itching for some better options-related plugin-dev
functionality, however. The problem I see with creating a "Misc
Options" page that people can add on to, is that it's not exactly
intuitive to look there. Misc Options is the place I look when I
can't find an option anywhere else... so it's the last place I'd look.
My problem is that creating an options page for only one option is a
lot of work for a little payoff. What I really want is a WP core
method of quickly creating an options page.
$abcd_option_page = new WP_Options_Page('abcd');
$abcd_option_page->checkbox('Some Option', 'someoption', '1');
That sort of thing. Obviously it can't encompass the most
whatever... but for most plugins, something like that would help out
plugin authors a lot.
