 Can you please explain what the main API will be used for as opposed
to the plug-in API?

 Also, I've seen you are using both registered "hooks" and "query"
function in the main API, isn't there a way to give all of the control
to the caller and have only queries in the main API side? I always
think of such "event driven" mechanisms as risky and since this is C
and not C++ the whole constructor/destructor thing is not available,
and simulating it never goes well.

 /my .2 cents
