[geeklog-devel] Proposal for Plugin API extension

I have a custom way of banning users.  I simply have an array of user 
ID's in my config file and if a user is in there I give them a 'your are 
banned' message.  Unfortunately, the nightly digest of topics doesn't 
know anything about my dirty little hack.  This got me to thinking we 
need an plugin API change for the following:

1) plugins should be able to include themselves in the nightly digest.  
I think controlling whether a plugin is allowed to do this by the site 
admin should be done in it's own config file or, better yet, the plugin 
admin page.
2) a way for a plugin to prevent a specific user from being able to 
receive the digest because of being banned.

I'm not saying this is how it should be but merely making suggestions.  
I'd like to open this up for discussion and decision so that I can 
implement this for us all (assuming we agree there is a need)...I really 
need this.
