I think we should have a proper plugin infrastructure, analogous but
separated from C++ source code.
Ideally this should:
- allow devs with privileges to upload their plugin
- do some consistency check (removing hidden, unnecessary files, .pyc
etc.) and pointing out missing elements (licence, minimum version, etc.)
- generate automatically the relevant entry in plugins.xml
- allow the maintainer to mark each plugin with the appropriate category
(sandbox, experimental, unstable, testing, stable), so users are warned
(but still allowed and encouraged to experiment).
