My understanding is that PlugIns is for dynamically loaded bundles that
require a special environment to be used in. I think that fits an
external, but I recognize that an external is a strange beast and hard
Some of my externals get bundle info, but they might not need to be in
some particular place to get that. I have to check, but I think in all
cases I'm referring to a loaded bundle.
Where would you suggest externals go? For the app stack and for
supporting stacks. Does the DB get involved in this?
Anybody else will to share where they put externals?
