The only thing needed is to be able to specify a plugin search path.
Right now we look only in ~/.AbiSuite/plugins and

That way we could ship plugins in the bundle as well, overriding the
system-wide plugins.

We would need to be really careful though, as plugins are C++ plugins at
the moment. There is no stable api at the moment. However, we do try
really hard not to break plugins during a stable series; this is not set
in stone though.
