I don't know since I don't use ,yet, those features myself. Only thing I ever changed/looked at were the settings for the Sony 505 Device Interface plugin.
Maybe Kovid can answer that one.

Pretty trivial to code up assuming I am thinking the same as you about what it needs to do. Presumably you just want a menu with suboptions allowing you to add a book to the news sync list, and another to remove from it? The only "difficult" part I see is coming up with sexy names for the menu items/plugin and the icons .
Yep, there is not much more to it.

Is there any configuration required for the plugin? e.g. is this a plugin that needs to have keyboard shortcuts or is its use infrequent enough that a context menu/toolbar action menu is sufficient?
I can live without a keyboard shortcut since I would use it only once in a while but the original poster might use it daily and then a keyboard shortcut might come in handy.

Go ahead get sidetracked for a couple of minutes since I haven't got any time for some coding the coming weeks Besides it was just the idea in the other thread that I didn't want get lost.
