If and when many of Kopete's plugins are moved to kdeaddons, I woudl expect
those to be activated on install as well.
The difference is this - if the user takes action to install a plugin, either
manually or via a package manager, then they *know* that the plugin is being
installed. They know it is there. They know they can remove it.
The issue with konqueror is many third party applications install Konq plugins
which the user is not aware of. They see all these extra crazy menus and
toolbar buttons, they don't know where they came from or what they are for ,
or how to get rid of them.
