Currently there is no build process for the plugins as they are 
installed. This is easy to add (please put a feature request into the 
issue tracker and assign it to me - unless you can do it and submit a 
patch of course. I should be able to do it later this week).  In the 
meantime, you can hard code it I'll let you know when I've added the 
build mechanism (it will call an ANT script which can do all the 
necessary configuration).

It is my goal to see all plugin installations fully automatic. However, 
there have been valid comments about minimising the download size of 
plugins and therefore requiring users to configure the plugin itself.

I would start of with a manual configuration and we can automate it from 
there. But we will need the above build process first anyway.
