[Thuban-list] term for extensions

So far, I received one pro Plug-In, and many against Plug-In.

Also, Add-On was not a favorite.

A new proposal was "Companion" in order to have some sort
of special branding. Like "Product" for Zope.
So, we might want to use  the term "a Thuban Companion" analog
to "Zope Product" ?

Further thoughts?
