results, and if the question that's being asked is
python-oriented anyway (their stack trace is clear to a python
coder, even though the user posting might now know what it
means), then you'll get folks pitching in that way, as well.
I realize that a decentralized service has its advantages over a
solution that's not under one's control - but there are benefits
to leveraging a site that already has a large mindshare for all

why there shouldn't be a documented Plugin API that would allow
other ranger plugins to register themselves. Then, publishing a
plugin can be done by posting it on PyPI, and installing can work
using the standard python tools (pip or easy_install).
