The building of the UI plugin has several things I do not like

1) I need to extract the UI part of the plugin and copy/symlink it to
fuel-web
2) I have to run grunt build on the whole fuel-web
3) I have to copy files back to original location to pack them
4) I cannot easily switch between development/production versions (no way
to easily change entry point)

The only way to install plugin is `fuel plugins --install`, no matter
development or production, so even development plugins should be packed to
tar.gz
