You *should* be able to simply remove the unwanted plugins from the plugins.int/ext files that specify what gets built and whether they are compiled as internal or external plugins. That of course assumes you want to drop entire plugins, which sounds likely.

The disadvantage is that anyone with access could simply stick a copy of the relevant plugin in the relevant place and it would get loaded...

Have you tried looking at the SecurityPlugin and how it is used? That is/was an attempt to handle this sort of case. Browse the class 'SecurityManager'.
