Get custom import formats working with PacletManager?

GROUPS:

Is there any chance of getting

System`ConvertersDump`$FormatsDirectory

hooked up to the PacletManager?

I'd like to auto-include my own formats via Paclet. I'm picturing it working via a "Formats" argument in the "Extensions"

I think it'd be useful for the developers I know

What exactly do you want to achieve? It is possible to register a new format in a paclet code. Here is an example: https://github.com/WolframResearch/BioFormatsLink

I want auto-linking, like the internal formats work. If I drop my format into $InstallationDirectory/SystemFiles/Formats it will be found automatically by the system.

It didn't seem there was a way to get that to work with the PacletManager for custom paclets from looking through the source code.
