I have an exception:

If aKregator wouldn't have installed AND activated its Konqueror plugin
I would never know it was fitted with it.

And I like the RSS integration of aKregator: it do the same as Firefox
and it's great.
It does not clutter the menus and I don't think users would want to
disable it.

Why Kopete plugins willn't be shiped with Kopete in 3 days?

It was just fine to install Kopete, begin to use it and browse
menus/dialogs at search of new features.
Plugins was a way to add new features easily without any other effort
(no download, nor compilation, nor installation).
