Could you give me an example, because seriously I can't think of any.
Again note the distinction between dependent plugins and sub-plugins.
If I make a "Spam Karma ReCaptcha" sub-plugin with "Spam Karma" as the
master, I can't imagine that ever being *also* a sub plugin for some
If you're talking a framework plugin, you have it turned around. The
Framework would be the master, and plugins based on it would be
dependent on it (but probably NOT sub-plugins.)
