Lightroom: Ability to apply post-processing actions (droplets) to publish services

Droplets are great but are currently limited to exported images. For example, if I have a drop shadow or a framing action, I can easily apply is via a droplet on export. That option doesn't exist if I want to publish my photo to Facebook, Flickr, or smugmug...

I use Hard Drive Publish Services in order to export photos into my server. As Hard Drive Publish Services only exports photos on local harddrive I then sync them through operating system level batch process. It would be easier to run it through Lightroom after pressing publish button if sucha Hard Drive Publish Services configuration option would exist.

I know there is Ftp Publish Services but that is not really option for me since my servers will not support that protocol. Using rsync is far more convenient. I also know that Lightroom SDK might offer ways to build a plugin that would do the job but that seems a bit too laborius for me.

As Hard Drive Publish Services only exports photos on local harddrive I then sync them through operating system level batch process. It would be easier if Hard Drive Publish Services would configuring option to set actions after publish has been done. So the actions would not be executed after exporting each photo but after all exporting would be done.

I am aware that there is Ftp Publish Services but that is now really an option for me since my servers does not support that protocol. Use of rsync over ssh is far more convenient.

Btw: I rewrote this idea since previously it was moved under this idea: http://feedback.photoshop.com/photosh.... If it happens again I try not to delete it this time, sorry for the last time. These ideas seems to be similar but yet different implementation.

This can be accomplished now, using an export filter plugin like 'Exportant' or 'Run Any Command', unless the publish service bypasses normal publishing and uses an ad-hoc export under the hood to do it's publishing (some, like TTG & Photooey Publisher, do; some, like Hard Drive & TreeSync Publisher, don't).

Do Flickr & SmugMug (and Facebook) plugins not support export filters (post-process actions)?
