Hmm, well one would have to exhaustivley trace all the possible ways  
of #availableModules getting sent, which after a couple of quick looks  
seems to be a large number. I reckon the easiest one to use in the  
short term is the menu option 'make all available' in the middlebutton  
menus for the Plugins not built/Internal Plugins/External Plugins lists.

I expect someone could make compiling any suitable class send  
#changed: #reinitialize to any and all open VMMaker instances if it  
seems important enough.
