Plugin for xlobby

I've been playing around writing a plugin for xlobby. I've used it before with the xAP plugin, but it wasn't very stable. I've since removed a lot of my xAP stuff. I do like xlobby's lightweight client for touchscreen applications, so I started toying with a plugin. I've been able to integrate xPL and access to mySQL into a plugin. This allows me to create xlobby events to issue xPL commands, and I can grab the status of everything in my system as its all stored in mySQL. However, the more I think about it, the more I'm going to want to script the responses from the plugin as some of the database contents need to be interpreted. I'll need to add a scripting engine at some point.
