Scanner API

Is it possible to add custom scanners to DEVONagent? I see that crawlersets and plugins are extensible via property lists, but inspection shows scanners are compiled binaries (objc?) and I cannot find any documentation pointing to any information about how to extend the scanner capability.

The Cocoa plugin & scanner interfaces are still private but a future release might introduce the possibility to create XML-based scanners. In addition, XML plugins will be able to use the HTTP POST action in v1.6 too (and therefore it will be possible to write XML plugins for almost every website providing a search function).
