plugin ID must be unique in Resolume

It appears that Resolume uses the plugin ID to keep track of its freeframe plugins. It came up because PlayerFF was using FFDemoSrc's plugin ID, and since FFDemoSrc happened to also be in Resolume's plugin folder, selecting PlayerFF actually selected FFDemoSrc instead. Flowmotion doesn't exhibit this behavior. So the freeframe documentation doesn't lie: plugin ID really does need to be unique! One wonders what non-authority is responsible for coordinating this...
