I think option a) /plugins/*/

Wondering ...

Does that allow people to just do 'svn checkout' of the
particular plugin that they are interested in?

Do we need trunk and branches for that?

Sorry, i do know enough about SVN management.

Is this "plugins" a sub-project of Forrest? Like "forrestbot" etc.
I think so.

Are there other Apache projects, or any project actually,
that does plugins and uses SVN? We could model our svn setup.
