Until bzr will control what plugins is active and what plugins is
temporary disabled, I'm personally want to use bunch of small plugins.
Because I can manage it without pain.

Until there is no plugins management infrastructure (with GUI or
something similar) that could parse our plugins page and check links as
setuptools can do with cheeseshop, and download or update plugins from
the internet or from the manually downloaded archives, talking about of
user point of view is craftiness, IMHO.

Right now I use following approach. I have 2 directories: plugins.work
and plugins.disabled. And when I need disable some plugin I move it to
plugins.disabled. And vice versa.

And as little note: bzrtools is good for unix-users but on windows it
about of 75% is unusable.
