While we're at --help and plugins:
There is no way how a plugin can detect whether it was loaded regularly
or just for displaying --help or --version. In the latter cases,
ProcessArgs() will be called with empty parameters and cannot fail
because it is missing a parameter. If it does fail, VDR stops loading
plugins and shows --help and --version only for plugins loaded before
the failed one.
(do we need to call ProcessArgs() at all for --help/--version?)
