If we started structuring the analyzers internally more like external plugins with the scripts and everything in them, it would feel more comfortable to me.  It seems like we'd be able to keep all of a protocol ephemera tied closely with it.

Would that work?  I know that internal and external plugins have some differences, but I don't know if that means we're limited in a bit in how we handle script land required data structures for analyzers.
