Summary: Make plugin loading optional

Initial Comment:
As current implementation, plugins are being loaded even when gem commands are not used.

This is affecting bundling and packaging since it forces to search for gems located in the GEM_PATH, even when the usage of RubyGems is just "usage" of the gem.

One example:

http://github.com/vertiginous/pik/issues#issue/37

There was a discussion about it:

http://rubyforge.org/pipermail/rubygems-developers/2009-August/004893.html

But no way to disable this has been provided.

Would love, prior next release, get a workaround to disable external lookup. 

Ideally, the search for plugins should be optional, but that is my PoV. Any workaround is welcome.

Thank you.
