 deal with third-party plugins.
 > Try saying that again when your plugins are a thousandth as easy to
 install as Firefox's. You have no mechanism in place for real plugin
 management. I'd believe it if you told me that the pidgin devs regret
 having made third-party plugins possible, and that they're not easier to
 install because then you'd have to deal with people using them.

 Mozilla team doesn't have to deal with people using plugins though, since
 the individual plugin developers deal with problems their plugins bring
 up. However, some plugin developers don't provide support because 1.]
