On the opposite, I think you should compile them all out.
But preinstall them, that is add necessary lines to mysql.plugin table
from mysql_install_db. The user experience will be pretty much the same
as if everything was compiled in, but one would be able to uninstall
plugins easily, if needed.

We considered this earlier.
It'd work for new installs, but not for existing ones so they'd have them all disabled until manually added.

It's fine if that's what you intended, but it's important to realise this consequence.
