Excellent idea. I spent the afternoon flying my little Extra 300  
model. Much more fun than worrying about software.

I really can't think why FilePlugin would get left out though. The  
only easily imaginable reason is that somehow VMM couldn't see the  
Cross or Unix directory for FilePlugin. That might possibly happen if  
you were hit by that uniquely (I hope) silly unixism of the stale  
directory handle. By pointing somewhere else and doing other stuff yo  
uwould likely have triggered enough gcs to have killed the old handle  
and then re-opened it later with fresh files. Or maybe you just  
burped at the wrong time.
