Strictly speaking, all of the API functions are optional :) For a
minimal plugin[1] you would only need to implement one function.

I think I'll make it ask two more questions:

1) Do you want to support Geeklog versions prior to 1.6?

-> For whether or not to add an old-school install script and for the
search API.

2) Do you need an SQL table?

-> Saves creating the "sql" directory (and the search functions).

Btw, this is, of course, an open source project. Contributions are
welcome. As are additional plugin-related tools to add to the toolkit.
