    A calibre plugin. Useful members include:

       * ``self.plugin_path``: Stores path to the zip file that contains
                               this plugin or None if it is a builtin
                               plugin
       * ``self.site_customization``: Stores a customization string entered
                                      by the user.

    Methods that should be overridden in sub classes:

       * :meth:`initialize`
       * :meth:`customization_help`

    Useful methods:
