RequiredPlugin List in PUB-Source

Currently the PUB-source can have a line starting with:

Variables= ....

It contains a list of used variables in the neobook app.
The content is updated when you use the 'Refresh' button in one of the variable dialogs.

I would like to see a similar entry for used plugins with an entry like:

RequiredPlugIns= ....

It would store the list which appear in MenuCommand 'Book\File List ..' under 'Required Plug-Ins:'

Would be usefull when I want to know, what plugins are used in a pub without the need to parse out all used commands and check from which plugin it is served.
Might be possible with DEC NBP-Info tools, but a list in the PUB would be much easier.

That's a good suggestion. It may slow down the save function a little, but probably not significantly.

Currently, NeoBook displays a list of missing files when opening a pub. Perhaps it could display a list of missing plug-ins too.

Yes, also very usefull. I had several times the situation in the past, where I run a pub and get a 'unknown command' error because of deinstalled plugins.
