Actually I would not agree with the automatic downloading purely because some plugin's (like mine - WPG2) have depend on external applications as well thus suddenly a new version has been automatically rolled in and things no longer work the way they should..

I feel we need to be able to option within the serialisation of the plugin if autoupdating is possible or instead generate a link to the plugin project page with the wordpress extend plugin system.
