We should investigate this ASAP.

Each of the three "Plugins Index" pages do
still need to be re-generated. For example,
a new plugin could be added tomorrow that
only requires 0.8 Forrest, so it would still
need to be listed on those pages.

Perhaps the pipeline that generates these pages
could consider the URI, e.g. seeing .../plugins_0_80/...
it should know not to overwrite those that have
been upgraded to now use 0.9 forrest.

Perhaps the plugins descriptor files need a "since"
attribute to assist with that.
