Bets framework/boilerplate to follow when creating a new Wordpress plugin

I am looking to start a new longterm ongoing plugin that will become quite feature rich eventually, and go through several versions with feature additions etc, like a commercial project.

Is there a best practise or framework to follow to help keep a project like this healthy, and extensible for the long term without walking over our own feet in the future.

First and foremost make sure you familiarize yourself with the official WordPress coding standards - http://codex.wordpress.org/WordPress_Coding_Standards

Two of the most popular frameworks include
WordPress Fuel: http://www.wordpressfuel.com
and
Xavisys WordPress Plugin: http://bluedogwebservices.com/xavisys-wordpress-plugin-framework

This TutsPlus tutorial is definitely worth a look as well, I've followed it and it is well written -
