If we got the stats plugin merged in then we could see how many of these
plugins are used/not used by people ;)

If the problem you're trying to solve is to make the plugin list easier to

list and making it "hard to navigate" again.  I'm not entirely sure how
scrolling a vertical list is hard to navigate though.
