There is already some support for that ( server/webapps is very similar
with the 3.3 "modules" - i.e. trusted components ). It'll need few changes
to deal with the loader issues ( i.e. they should be included in the
server loader - quite easy ).

The option I preffer for that is to use JMX. Each "pluggin" will be
an mbean that is loaded using either an mlet-like or via a deployment
descriptor ( server/webapps is also fine - using webapps as plugin
units ). JMX notifications can be easily used to have the plugin 
loading/unloading very flexible.
