Native Support for Dynamic Palettes

I think it would be really cool if a dynamic palettes (I will call it that after the OpenG package name, but there maybe a better descriptor for it?) were a first class feature of VIPM. There would be nothing better than being able to open up a native LabVIEW palette and being able to select from your code - all conveniently in the one place just like the OpenG ogrsc_dynamicpalette package does for OpenG etc...

I want to vote for this idea more than once :)

It would be great to implement this without the need to have an additional dependency package like the old OpenG had.
One possible solution is to modify the existing NI mnu files as new palette items get installed. The main issue with this approach would be that if you update LabVIEW to a patch release such as LabVIEW SP1, all of the customizations that VIPM made would get overwritten by the LabVIEW installer.
