Please don't bother to answer, I did figure it out, I'm sorry, for a bad
question and worse followup. Apparently I'm a spammer as well.
Apparently the error was caused by something else besides plugins in
my configuration. After carefully running --initialize from scratch
and modifying my.ini I was able to get mysqld.exe up and running just
fine on Windows 64 for MySQL 8.0 RC. After that mysql_upgrade worked
a treat. I did have a couple issues since it was my first time *NOT*
using --initialize_insecure in this configuration but it all works if
you do it right. As per usual.
Sorry for the noise here,
