Um... What's the story with "color dither"? *confused* Isn't that the same functionality that's already provided in the color quantizer one?

Also, there's a minor interface issue with the current version of your plugins. You have some dark titlebars with white text on them. The problem is that the color of the text is permanent while the background color is not. What do I mean? I mean that the background color of those headers gets changed by custom OS colors while the text doesn't. In my case, this leaves white text on white backgrounds, making them completely unreadable. I'm using the 32-bit plugin, on win XP.
