Hey all,

I would like to make the plugins that i maintain (acn, artnet, enttec,
rdm and  later rtnet) into buildin dissectors. The reason is that i
would like to add some things based on the TAP interface and as i
understood it thats not really doable in a plugin. Also i don't see any
main advantage anymore in having plugins instead of buildins. 

Can i just prepare a SVN patch that does the makefile update, file moves
and deletes ? or do you need it in some special form ?
