Yes, and that's exactly why we want the plugins to ship separatly. We
don't want to give CVS access to all plugins developpers, we don't want
to be responsible for every single plugin.

If a given plugin stops working because of an API change (which, again,
did not happen yet), that's no big deal (remember, we are talking about
plugins, this is very different from the core components), the
maintainer of the plugin will make a release later on...
