    simple as that, a plugin that allows your server to support vanilla mods.

    what i was hoping you could do to add on to that is make it so it supports non multiplayer mods as well.

    It's been tried, unsuccessfully - supporting vanilla mods automatically would be very difficult, since CraftBukkit is semi-deobfuscated and mods are reobfuscated completely. All the symbols would have to be mapped perfectly.

    Even if you could get that to work, there are still differences in vanilla and how CraftBukkit handles some things, which are not easily automatically translated. For example containers have to be manually edited to conform to CraftBukkit conventions.

    Yes definitely. You could also request someone else to port it, maybe someone will (as long as they get the original author's permission). If its already SMP: http://www.mcportcentral.co.za/index.php?board=5.0 or if it's SSP: http://www.mcportcentral.co.za/index.php?board=11.0 . Also be sure to check if the mod has already been requested before making a new thread; many popular mods (e.g. Flan's Mod) have already been requested but no one has stepped up to port them, but on the other hand if the mod is already SMP and Forge it may not be that difficult to port. Worth asking :)
