That sounds like a good idea.

Currently, this is implemented with abstract classes (f.e. ExportSql and
ExportXml extend ExportPlugin and so on), and those provide a similar
functionality to the interface. I decided to use abstract classes, because
I wanted to be able to declare some common variables and getters and
setters for them.
