Lightbulb Plugins for Winamp Android

It looks like Winamp on Android doesn't support its PC cousin's plugins. Although I understand that the smartphone version won't be completely identical to the PC version, I think it would be a really good idea if the Android version supported the PC version's plugins - it's actually something I'd be prepared to pay for if it were in Winamp Pro. I use several plugins daily and without them, Winamp is Just Another Media Player.

Any plans to implement support for them?

I can't see that happening without each plug-in developer recompiling their plugins for the Android Platform. And Winamp have no control over the decisions of the plugin makers.

the Android version will never be able to support what is present in the desktop version even if there was a plug-in system for the Android version.

the design and implementation is completely different between the platforms and the nearest equivalent is trying to get a linux-based plug-in for XMMS to work in Winamp on Windows just by copy + pasting a new dll from one to the other i.e. it just won't work.

also i highly doubt seeing the Android version get any sort of plug-in system like the Windows version as the Android version appears to be specifically intended as a locked down system. maybe i'm wrong and someone actually working on it could clarify but that is how it appears to have been and will be going on.
