Initial Comment:
We need a “Plugin Manager” which loads and unloads plugins like extensions, tools, and engines. This class would handle all instantiation, but also a user interface to load new plugins, and enable/disable current options.

Alongside this, the Plugin Manager should add submenus to access less-frequently used tools, engines, etc. (For example, in the View menu, a submenu which lists all installed plugins, not just those in the engine list widget.)
