>> There are autoload features of blog options tables which many plugins are
not taking advantage of.

> Autoload defaults to enabled, so unless the plugin specifically disables
it for its own options, then it is taking advantage of it.

And the converse, if you have a complex plugin with a number of options that
should not be autoloaded, then consider two options for your plugin: one
that contains options to be autoloaded, and one that does not. This is a
rare use case but is helpful.
