Healers have to die

18 - Improve AddonLoader config

Hi - Great addon, just one suggestion:

Currently the AddonLoader support in the .toc is very simplistic:

## LoadManagers: AddonLoader
## X-LoadOn-Slash: /hhtd
## X-LoadOn-Always: delayed

As a user on a PvE server who only pvps occasionally, I'd really prefer this addon to load only when I'm pvping.

I would suggest changing the X-LoadOn-Always clause to something like:

## X-LoadOn-Battleground: true

or even:

## X-LoadOn-PvPFlagged: true

that way it doesn't consume cycles and memory when I'm not doing pvp.

    HHTD also put a red cross upon NPC healers.

    About the protect healer setting, options could be added to make it ignore AOE for example (I'm not sure if those are identifiable in the combat log though).

    Yes, I've already overridden the settings for my own addonloader.

    I understand that HHTD *can* be used for PvE, but is that really what most users want? It's the tank's job to keep things from hitting the friendly healer in PvE, and no offense there are far better tanking addons for monitoring that (and the more important and common case of dps pulling aggro). In PvE this addon generates way too many false positives from unavoidable aoe damage to be useful imo.

    Yes but HHTD is also used for PVE. I've made a few optimisations for when you disable the PVE option in HHTD's preferences: the combat log analysers leaves very early when sources are NPCs. You can also create (if I remember well) a custom configuration in add-on loader.
