Actually, if you're doing this for a plugin, I see no reason why the *plugin 
itself* shouldn't have a DoFHandler. I would implement this for a sequential 
run first, and we can then think of ways how to work out what one would need 
to do to make this run in parallel as well. But I think of using a DoFHandler 
as a member variable of a plugin as a particularly nice, self-contained way of 
tracking this kind of information.
