I know that there is a plugin like this already on bukkitdev, but it is severely outdated. I would like a plugin, that hooks into factions, where your faction can have research points that can be spent for permissions. I would like a custom configuration, or at least a command to create a researched permission. That permission then leaves the player if they leave a faction, and it gets granted to the player if he or she joins a faction that has that permission researched. This is extremely important on my server, and will add a whole new aspect. I plan for this plugin to be used in conjunction with the crackshot guns plugin.
