I don't think so.   You cannot really "remove" a plugin in a profile, you can 
just add.   Thus, the default profiles would not be able to have the plugin, 
which would make things quite a bit more complicates.

One option that MIGHT work is to add the snapshot repo as a pluginRepository 
into the poms.   Thus, if you don't have the plugin built already, it would 
download it.   Since we have hudson doing deploys every night there is a 
change, the only time that wouldn't work is on the day we're doing release 
builds where the pom has been updated, but the new deploy build hasn't 
triggered yet.

I used to hate having a snapshot pluginRepo as that was an invitation to get 
all kinds of unwanted snapshots versions of plugins.   However, with maven 
2.0.10 (and 2.2.1) locking most things down and we went through and locked 
down everything else, I think we'd be OK.
