Koen Aers commented on SEAMFORGE-253:
-------------------------------------

To give some more info: I actually liked the use of this 'hidden' plugin because it provided me pretty much with all I needed. I think the only thing that needs to be provided is a way to really hide the command, maybe with a '@Hidden' annotation or something alike. Or is that too hacky?

> For the Eclipse Forge Tools I need to be able to do the following:
> - ask Forge for the list of available commands in the current context
> - ask Forge for the plugin/command/option metadata 
> Ideally this should be done by sending Forge a 'meta' command that doesn't get executed but triggers a user provided listener (pretty much like a Forge plugin) that can build and send back the response. 
> I have experimented with a Forge plugin providing this behaviour but of course then this plugin shows up in the list of available commands which I don't want. This plugin had an alias that started with the ansi escape sequence so that its echo was easily detected and handled appropriately.
