Storing the plugins system wide still gives the user the possibility
to use josm's download/update functionality. I worry that this could 
lead to some problems due to plugin incompatibility, version conflicts,
etc.
Removing the download code might be an option. Do you think this
would be an unnecessary change to the original src and we should
rather try it the way it is, shipping an josm-plugins package _and
leaving josm's dl function intact?
Sorry if i'm asking silly questions for maybe obvious answers, i need
to learn here :)
