I agree - a lot of various features seem to be important for each of us. But we have one strong common point - we need to implement generic support for possibility of showing state of any device on floorplans and that would solve all those problems. This is basic framework - on top of that, alot of new features can be added - but we need to solve basic problems (in my view "generic state changed" event or something similar can solve this)... Also a lot of stuff is currently hardcoded in plugins, so in majority it's not enough if you add certain device to certain category that it will be shown on floorplan... Behaviour is currently not consistent.
I have talked to Chris and Eugene some time ago, and we agreed that such support will be experimentally added for lighting and climate plugin, but currently I'm not sure if this has happened.... Will check that with Chris tomorrow.
I jsut talked to Chris (Pluto developer) today. He's willing to help with info. I'll move this discussion in new thread at :http://forum.linuxmce.org/index.php?topic=3715.0
