Yes, I know that the plugingroups you have created work and can be used 
to build server assemblies.  That wasn't really the question.

The paragraph from me was in response to David's suggestion that the 
plugingroups should be distributed with the plugin which they are most 
closely affiliated.  It's my opinion there isn't a consistent system 
that makes one plugin the obvious choice to contain the aggregate (as 
demonstrated in the example I presented).
