If I just import <Adium/AIPreferenceControllerProtocol.h>, I get
"error: cannot find interface declaration for
'AIPreferenceController'". Small test case for this (as

    #import <Cocoa/Cocoa.h>
    #import <Adium/AIPlugin.h>
    #import <Adium/AIAdiumProtocol.h>
    #import <Adium/AIPreferenceControllerProtocol.h>

    @interface AIPreferenceController (MyCat)
    - (void)foobar;

    @implementation AIPreferenceController (MyCat)
    - (void)foobar {

    @interface FileTransferFoldersPerSenderPlugin : AIPlugin {

    @implementation FileTransferFoldersPerSenderPlugin

Haven't tried swizzling yet, since I planned to add a method with a
category and then swizzle. Since I can't get adding the method to
work, I haven't gone further.
