What to folks think about this idea? I think that the intent of this
suggestion is to make it potentially easer to generate and build an
individual plugin without the need to build the entire VM. The
down side would be that it could cause problems for the people
who write and support the platform code.

I have no preference one way or the other, but I'm curious what
others think.
