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.

That's not too different from other changes in system tables.
mysql_fix_privilege_tables is generally recommended after an upgrade

Ah, so you want to put it in the mysql_fix_privilege_tables rather than in mysql_install_db?
That can work. Monty, what do you reckon?
