[geeklog-devel] User Profile Plugin API

Before 1.5 releases, could something be done about the User Profile 
API. PLG_profileVariablesEdit() is fine. The problem is 
PLG_profileBlocksEdit(). They don't make sense now that the 
userprofile is using the NavBar. The blocks must show in the Preview 
tab and that's unfortunate. It would be really nice if the plugin 
could create a new tab. My suggestion is to change the return from 
plugin_profileblocksedit to a be either a string (as it is now) or an 
assoc array. If a string is returned, it goes in the preview tab as 
usual. If an array is returned, tabs are added to the navbar using 
the key as the tab name and the value as the page data. If the name 
is already existing, the data is appended to page.

I haven't really researched this completely, but it would be more 
consistent with the new interface.
