Bzr plugins *must* die!

The folks at Mozilla have greatly improved the plug-in experience over 
the past few years. It used to be a real pain, with conflict between 
packaged-plugins and those installed directly by the user. Now, it's 
pretty cool. Firefox:

 - automatically searches for updated plugins
 - smoothly disables plugins that won't work when the browser changes
 - has moved very popular plugin functions into the core

We could learn from them, and implement a similar capability, with a 
registry that can be queried and a framework for describing core and 
plugin versions.
