I was actually going to do something like that but sort of ran out of  
time.  Admin.jsp allows you to list all the installed plugins, and  
the idea was that you could turn plugins (well, any kind of modules:  
filters, editors, etc) on and off from there.

Essentially it would mean a new field in the WikiModuleInfo, and  
necessary code in the PluginManager.  I would most prefer if the UI  
were in the form of an AdminBean.

Could be targeted for 2.8.x, x >=1.
