Plugins like the scheduled search and import (feature #13) need some method to dynamically add new windows and buttons to the user interface so that the user can interact with them. User interface logic also needs to be supported. An infrastructure needs to be implemented which can make this possible even when using a frontend which is connected to the NNTPGrab Server
