I believe that if you select files with different MIME types, only
plugins working with ALL those MIME types will appear. So you'll have
even LESS plugins in the menu.

Well, tell me: what ? What's the problem ?

I believe that MIME-specific plugins should be in the top level menu
while general plugins (working with any MIME-type) should be in an
"addon" submenu...
