I wrote my own Python plugin loader a while back. It gets classes filtering based on superclass and optionally keys of a metadata dictionary; they can live in:

The host (builtins)
Named modules or packages
Modules or packages at given paths
Modules or packages in a given directory
Modules or packages that are part of a given package (probably a namespace package)
Modules or packages specified as entry points in a given group

And then the entirety of Far Harbor opened up.

Dammit.

Is Alpine Edge stable enough for daily workstation use?

"Aerojet-Rocketdyne" is such a fantastic name for a company though.
