That's exactly how it works: When you 'Deactivate All', it saves a list
of your currently activated plugins. Then when you 'Reactivate All', it
only reactivates the previously active batch.

Perhaps 'Reactivate ALL' is bad wording. Any suggestions for better
terminology? 'Reactivate Previously Deactivated Plugins' seems kind of
long for the button :)

Perhaps 'Reactivate Plugin Bundle'? Or maybe 'Batch'?
