Hey all, is there any list of Engine-based plugins out there already? Any way to find new ones that might be useful? (This would make a great FAQ entry...) Also, I'm currently finishing up my first Engine for public consumption (a sIFR-based rich-font helper), is there a convention for naming Engine-based plugins? Right now I have my plugin named SifrHelper, would SifrEngine be more clear/consistent? Thanks!

Personally, I'd prefer that people *didn't* use the SomethingEngine name as it is too strongly associated with the negative views surrounding "engines". See http://rails-engines.org/news/2007/01/03/engines-a... for some of my thoughts behind this. Regarding a list, I'm not sure what value it would provide, beyond making it easier for nay-sayers to tell which plugins they ought to declare as "being evil" :) Plugins can be useful whether or not they take advantage of the engines plugin, and if they're sufficiently useful then you'll hear about them through the grapevine anyway :)
