[typo] Typo plugins issues

Hi list,

Between 4.0 and 4.1, there were lots of changes in the plugins  
Plugins have been rewriten to become simple rails plugins you can  
install with script/plugin install {#PLUGIN_SOURCE_URI}.

We've been talking about this lately Piers and I. We're going to  
remove most of them from the application core and set up an official  
plugin repository.

This aims at 4 things
– Enlighten Typo as much as we can.
– Stop waiting for a new Typo release each time a service changes its  
API. We'll just update the plugins.
– Remove redundancy : I guess most people don't use both delicious  
and magnolia. And I wonder how much of you really use the xbox card  

Here are the plugins we're going to leep in the trunk :
– Archives (will be activated in the default install)
– Amazon (because it interacts with some text filters, it's a good  
example to show)
– Categories (will be activated in the default install)
– Recent comments
– Statics (with Typo developers blogroll activated by default)
– Tags
– XML syndication (will be activated in the default install)

We'll start moving less used plugins starting today, and the whole  
change will be removed at the next release. Remember using the trunk  
is always at your own risks.
