I have an idea for a new plugin, but have a couple of questions:

1) Is it possible to add content to the New Content page?
2) Can a plugin add to the capabilities of an existing plugin?

Thanks!

What should be added? A function? A sentence? An image? Or what?

Since there is no Podcasting plugins, I was thinking of trying my hand at writing one. It would need for a way to allow the author to give a url for the audio to be included.

Looking through the plugins that are available, I saw that erdifr has already released an RSS plugin, I figured instead of re-inventing the wheel, or releasing my own that is largely his with a few more options, if it was possible to inherit his and add the needed content for Podcasting.

(My apologies if this should have been part of the podcasting entry).

The licence allows to modify and extend the plugins.

That's cool, is there an API for modifying the enter new posting screen?
