This sounds like something that would really help new users.
Considering the disadvantages of portability, if plugins where
available as .debs, then apt could be used to solve dependencies and
do any other customisation plugin would need.
Of course, having something that would download from HTTP and place it
in the users plugins/ dir would be much more portable, but harder to
maintain/develop and risk missing dependencies from external

All in all, this really seems like it would put bzr even more ahead of
other VCS in the usability area.
