In the meantime, I've submitted #345. The sidebar content is written
into each page but it has a call to Ajax.Update to run out and try to
fetch newer sidebar content from the server.
If the person running the blog wants to update the sidebar content
every 15 minutes all they have to do is have a cronjob delete .../
public/sidebars/sidebar/display_plugins.html every 15 minutes so it
will be regenerated at the next request. Alternatively if they set
permissions so that file could not be generated, users will always
get the most recent sidebar content.
There is a slight delay to when the updated content appears over the
old stuff, but it's while images are still loading on my browser and
not too distracting.
