[Rubygems-developers] Making plugins easier to install

I was just reading over this nice article from Gabriel Horner:
One thing he describes that I didn't like was step 3 - the manual
I think we need a way to automate that.
One idea I had was to add the '--plugin' option for 'gem install'.
Another idea that James Tucker brought up was to have users perform a
regular gem install for a plugin, and to activate it later via 'gem
activate plugin' or something along those lines.
If we go the --plugin route, I think that means having to add extra
attributes to the specification, which we may not want. As you can see,
I haven't thought about the actual implementation yet. :)
