handling extensions in a canonical (no pun intended)

This reminds me of per-user installed deb's (not supported) vs global
install's which clog up every users. For one in Ubuntu we have e.g.
plugins OOo in the repo. But if you install them there is no option
for unpriviledged users to disable it =/ it's just gray in OO.o

It would be great, technically it might just be possible, but
applications are still not ready for this resulting in bad UX.

Python applications seem to be the most graceful at plugin management
(e.g. bzr). I think this should be pushed upstream per application so
that each extension can be installed into /usr and be disabled on
per-user basis.
