That would require core changes, but is indeed a solid solution. ;-)

In the shorter term, I'm going to start teaching some of my plugins to  
look for /plugins/plugin-data/<pluginname>, and use that if it  
exists.  If scribu's suggestion is ever added to core, I will switch  
to using that.

Regards All,
