xPL Plugin for Event Ghost

I just threw together an xPL plugin for Event Ghost in a couple days. It allows you to add macros in EG that respond to xPL events and to send xPL messages in response to other events. I'm not a Python coder by any stretch, but I can hack my way through enough of it to be dangerous. Therefore, don't expect the code to be that great or readable.

Here's a couple of screenshots of it in action:

This one shows an event generated by the plugin. The format of the event is:
xPL.<message identifier>:<schema>:<source>:<target>:<xPL message body>

Obviously, you'll get billions of different events so that may make it more difficult to deal with on the EG side as there doesn't appear to be any wildcarding of events.

This screencap shows the configuration box to send an xPL message.

Download the plugin here. I don't have much time to support this, so good luck with it ;) You should understand xPL. If not, read and ask.
