I've been thinking about this since I wrote it this afternoon, and I'm now of the opinion that I probably gave you bad advice. I don't think altering Home.pm is the best way to accomplish this - I think writing a plugin is the best way to accomplish this. I'm not sure I really understood what a plugin was (from a programming standpoint) until after writing that post, but now I'm thinking that a plugin is a way to add a new perl module and instruct Home.pm and the other existing ones to "divert" to the new one and its subroutines under certain circumstances. I suppose the reason that writing a plugin is better than altering Home.pm directly is that plugins are a) reversible, and b) upgrade safe.

I'm really super new to this stuff myself, so hopefully someone from GT staff - Alex ??, TheStone ?? - will confirm or deny my newbie impressions of all this stuff, since I don't want to cause more harm than good in my effort to help here.
