Sorry, I've stayed quiet on this because I don't use epn, so don't  
necessarily understand the issues. I know Gavin Carr uses epn, but  
I'm not sure who else currently on the plugin team.

My British penny (just less than two cents) says: vim style comments;  
limit macro to first 10 lines. Maybe you could cache the plugin name  
(keyed on file location?) so that you don't need to keep re-reading  
the plugin?
