Erm, not completely true. If a project declares a dependency on a
particular version of a plugin, then that's what it gets. Any previous
ones are uninstalled at runtime, and the newer or older one is
installed for the new project. Once the project is done building, the
dependency is uninstalled and the original put back.

This hasn't been tested for how it works when a plugin depends on
another plugin, but I haven't seen a use case for that yet.
