KDevelop has sessions that can be active concurrently and which can have different sets of plugins loaded. Is that supported in your implementation, and is it written in such a way that the user's selection doesn't change behind his back during an update (beyond new, default-active plugins appearing in the list, or retired plugins disappearing)?

My idea wasn't too different except that it hides the selection of which plugins are available in an additional dialog, leaving a pruned list of options to select from for everyday life. IMHO that's the best future-proof approach for an application of which the plugin list keeps growing (and I'm not even on a system where someone else installs all existing 3rd party plugins to satisfy the potential needs of all users.
