Great job! Thats exactly how it should be.

ok, but perhaps it looks better ;-)

I think so too. Perhaps CallAllExtensions could also return a pointer to the 
plugin like CallFirstExtension does. 

Thanks again. The next release of epgsearch will support this patch, and I 
hope I can soon drop the currently needed #ifdef PATCH_EXTENSIONINTERFACE ;-)

Hope other developers also integrate it.
