Okay, I just ran into this same problem with the Links plugin, which has
links and categories. Obviously, I can do

    PLG_itemSaved($lid, 'links');

for a link. But what do I call when a link category changed? Claiming
'category' for the Links plugin would be rude.


    PLG_itemSaved($cid, 'links.category');

i.e. allow plugins to have subtypes, separated by a dot.


bye, Dirk
