This coming Monday is a bad time.  We are trying to tag a Development Platform.
I think this will cause a lot of breakage in the apps, which will cause extra
frustration and delays we don't need at this time.

But.. I think I like option [1] better now anyway.  Better to strongly suggest
that people remove the "lib" prefix unless necessary.

[1] leave it as it is and keep the "WITH_PREFIX" option, so some plugins have 
the "lib" prefix and others don't
