I note your comments on this (separate thread), I'll complete this issue 
- thanks for the review.

As far as I can tell it is all done but for ensuring that there is an 
unversioned copy of each plugin in the 0.7 release tree. i.e. we copy 
the most recent 0.7 versioned plugin to the root of the 0.7 download 
with no version number.

I know this is ugly, but that's how the hack works ;-)

We'll move to Ivy deployment of plugins (or Cocoon blocks, if they are 
versioned) in 0.9

I see this as a significant issue, PDF generation is a commonly used 
feature. Whilst it only affects images in xdocs/images and therefore can 
be worked around it's a pretty ugly workaround.

I feel sure it can be sorted out, but haven't looked at it.

I guess that means I volunteer since Gav and yourself have looked over this.
