Now that #1 above (assemblies created using plugins) is available in  
trunk I can go ahead and move the new console under server/trunk/ 
plugins like David suggested as a transitional step towards #2  
(plugins maintained and released separately from the server).    I  
will go ahead and move the new console to that location for the  
transitional phase unless there is strong support around going  
straight for #2.

i.e. if someone wants to figure out how to build assemblies from  
multiple moving parts in the 2.1 time frame then please chime in  
before I "hard wire" the console and its various plugins into server/
