### Attach plugin to included laser model

Hello,

My sdf model contains an included Hokuyo laser, and I tried to attach the rather standard libgazebo_ros_gpu_laser.so plugin, as follows:

<model name="my_laser">
<include>
<uri>model://hokuyo</uri>
<pose>-0.22 0 0.10500000000000001 0 0 3.141592653589793</pose>
<plugin name="laser_plugin" filename="libgazebo_ros_gpu_laser.so" />
</include>
</model>


I get this error:

Model[my_laser] is attempting to load a plugin, but detected an incorrect plugin type.


Indeed, from what I see in the example, the plugin is meant for <sensor> elements.

So can I access the sensor itself, and attach the plugin to it directly?

If not, how do you suggest I use the plugin?

Thanks,
