What overhead? Specifics please.

Note that I already addressed the point about docs, which should be 
removed from the download and packaged separately. This is easily done 
by adding an <exclude...> pattern to the ant script.

Note that things like input.xmap, locationmap.xml etc. are only used if 
they are present.

The plugin download mechanism *is* the original skin download mechanism 
(with versioning added).
