If it’s just about tidying the interface, I’d suggest using the ‘advertise’ property of a plugin.  You can configure this in the cfg.d directory:

Hey List

while tidy up the single EPrint view for our customers, we want to throw away all unneded export plugins. Therefor i'll change the accept conditions from single dataobj and list

$self->{accept} = [ 'list/*', 'dataobj/*' ];

to list only

$self->{accept} = [ 'list/*' ];

However: ~/perl_lib/EPrints/Plugin/Export/Simple.pm is just for single use ($self->{accept} = [ 'dataobj/eprint' ];) and if i delete this, i could also deactivate the plugin from the system.

So here is my question: Does anybody know what "Simple Metadata" it good for? Does any routine needs it or is it just a "Show me all"-Toy?! Recursive grep doesn't show any other used case.
