Ron, I can't help thinking you're confused about something here.  
Internal or external makes no difference to the plugin. If you've  
written code that only works with it built and linked internal then  
you've written it wrong.

The *only* particular value to making a plugin internal is that it  
simplifies distribution for unix & windows platforms by having a  
single executable.
