Subject Re: [DISCUSS] Component/Plugin repository

We could have a separate repository for these plugins...

They could be part of our binary distribution (as being consumed), and
we could have special CLI options to activate them.


e.g.: ./artemis create /folder --plugin prometheus


The prometheus plugin would be only applied if such option was applied.
