Because you can benefit from what's already done, and users can benefit from the changes or improvement you may add. But ignore me.

...yeah, I see what you are saying now. It was getting late and I was already bulldozing in one direction; I had more code written than I probably let on, and I didn't pick up on what you were saying.
But on that note, I have often considered it would probably nice if there was a plugin of API enhancements. Something more general to aide in geting around common pitfalls. Tapping into SideBarEnhancement is good, but it requires people to also install SideBarEnhancement, and while I like and use SideBarEnhancement, not everyone might; they may pick up features they aren't keen on. Something more general that simply provides scripts to tap in to or do commonly wanted and used things would be cool. The downside is that your plugin becomes dependent on other maintainers not breaking functionality and to upkeep it for your plugin to work. It has both pluses and minuses. By having a plugin self contained, you have better quality assurance, but not as many people may benefit from the things you have figured out, or you may get stuck on something someone else has figured out.
