I like interface for cPlugin::ExtensionInterface() it will be very
usefull for the softplay/softdevice communication!

In my opinion the method CallPluginExtension() is not needed, the same
can easily done by just calling

About the other methods CallFirstExtension() or CallAllExtension(), I'm
not sure. Currently I don't think that I will need them. But who knows?
If they are there, I think it would be nice to be able to know which
plugin actually answered the request, so that following request can be
sent directly to that plugin. That way one could first query for a
specific extension and then send all requests directly.
