We already have activate and deactivate hooks, although putting them in
an ebuild style file might have merit.

Such flexibility shouldn't be necessary. Plugins that are installing
outside of the plugins directory should be spanked and sent to bed. Bad
I like the Installer plugin because it is fairly straightforward and
doesn't try to do too much. Plus, it is implemented and working. But,
grafting some of these ideas onto the installer might be nice. Maybe
Matt Read and Owen will weigh in with their thoughts.
