[wp-testers] 2.7 bleeding "Install Plugins" bug

StatPress will have issues with both the installer, and the automatic  
Its due to the way they've setup the SVN repo. for the plugin.

Put simply: Its not "standard" use of a SVN repo, However, I'm planning on  
adding a workaround into the installer/upgrader to work around these  

"standard use": Putting the plugin files in /trunk/ and tagging releases  
instead of putting plugins in a subdir of /trunk/ (/trunk/wp-statpress/ in  
this case)

Theres a ticket on this issue here:

(It'll be a lot easier to write a patch for it now that i know a plugin  
which is affected..)
