Why? When moving parts of the code into separate plugins they can
by modified to C++ during that operation. It's not so difficult to
change code from C to C++, it's more difficult to do it in opposite
direction. Or am I wrong? Are some compilers so strict about that?

And what about tooltip?

Don't see any problems with this under Windows.

And finaly I must praise you. *Very good work*. Blender rely needs this.

OpenOffice.org uses ZIP compression for its files (SXW,SXC,SXD,...).
It makes all XML files to be in one file and even makes them smaller.
Maybe we could use some compression too.
