Is that the 'init' action, or my plugin's init function (the constructor)?

Does that mean that the Codex is wrong, then? It lists plugins_loaded
as coming before init
(http://codex.wordpress.org/Plugin_API/Action_Reference), which is
probably what made me think I could do it this way in the first place.

To further complicate things, the docs for register_activation_hook()
say that the callback passed to that function doesn't have access to
global variables at the point when it's called. Does that include WP
globals like $wp_rewrite?
