AFAIK it doesn't -- script/plugin install from a git URL is no better
than manually unpacking the tgz into vendor/plugins, i.e. completely
useless. I've pretty much resigned myself to just blowing away each
plugin directory when I want to update it, and either tracking my
local changes manually (i.e. maintaining a diff that I laboriously
reapply after updating) or monkeypatching plugins in lib/ rather than
modifying them directly.
(script/plugin update relies on svn:externals.)
Rails dependency management is getting worse. Maybe piston 2.0, with
git support, will make it better again?
