Why not include the various Commodore/Amiga packerplugins?

I need them for my misc emulation projects and i hate to install them myself.

Not all of those plugins autoinstall when i doubleclick on them and i wish they where preinstalled in the next TCUP Installer.

I also need the AVI packer plugin preinstalled in the next TCUP Installer.

See attached packerplugins

just as commentary, you can set a plugin to autoinstall by adding inside the zip file the config file ' pluginst.inf ' (before must open and do some little changes)

PD: see attachment as an example

I know that, but why does other's or I have to make them autoinstall when the author of them can do it. I know some of them are old and does'nt have this feature, but anyway. Why should we user's of them get's our hand's dirty to do that for them. Sorry if i repeat myself here.

Maybe because they are needed very rarely?

My personal opinion is that I think there is no need for most of these plugins. I've used different emulators dozen times and not even once need to install WCX for handling its files.

I had installed avi.wcx in February, 2006. Since then I used it maybe ten times. It is not the matter of the size of it but rather installer code complexity (i.e. associations part).

Seriously: how many people will need it? Will this number be greater than for 7zip or ISO? What about ~500 other plugins in this case?
