I'm on the fence if we want to add yet another Xtra type. Having them
done via a plugin (meaning they have to call a method to replace the
toolbar icons) is a dumb compromise -- worst of both worlds. Plus we
still don't have a good plugin versioning API.

Here's why I'm on the fence about adding another Xtra type: Our
current UI for managing Xtras kinda sucks. it's just a bunch of
dropdowns in a pane that could have a lot of other useful controls in
it. I would love to move all Xtras management to the Xtras manager.
This would free up precious UI space in our preferences. I would also
love it if we could have an in-app Xtras browser.
