Re: [hudson-dev] [Hudson-Dev] Re: Questions and ideas for JSR330 plugins

I like this idea :-) throw in some sugar coating on the management
page so the user can easily enable all loggers for a given plugin e.g.
group by getPluginId();

Then why didn't you, what better way to show your point than a working
prototype ;-) ;-)
