Hello Saket,

Thanks for your interest - I totally agree, I think a lot of tools
like this would be better served as visualization plugins. There is a
Trello card for this request https://trello.com/c/YLA70rZx - please
vote up if you are interested.

This has been discussed by the core team and I some member of the team
was largely in favor though there was some descent. I think both the
tool shed and visualization framework are well suited to allow this
integration (not that there aren't many little hurdles, but I think at
a high level it should be possible).

That said - I don't think this is a top priority for the core team
right now (though others should definitely correct me if I am wrong) -
and I would be surprised to see movement on it this year.

Perhaps until this is available perhaps the community should just
maintain a centralized list of repositories on the wiki? I think
seeing a list of community developed plugins would also help the team
guage how important automating install of new plugins should be.

-John
