[wp-hackers] Remove wp_enqueue_style called mid-page

Hi Dino,

Have you tried simply enqueueing that style? In theory WP shouldn't render
the same style/script twice.

function my_enqueue_plugin_style() {
    wp_enqueue_style( 'plugin-style' );
add_action( 'wp_enqueue_scripts', 'my_enqueue_plugin_style' );

If the plugin doesn't register the style all the way until it's enqueued,
then it'd be a bit more tricky, but something like this should work:

function my_dequeue_plugin_style() {
    wp_dequeue_style( 'plugin-style' );
add_action( 'wp_footer', 'my_dequeue_plugin_style' );

function my_enqueue_plugin_style() {
    wp_enqueue_style( 'plugin-style', $url_to_plugin_css_file );
add_action( 'wp_enqueue_scripts', 'my_enqueue_plugin_style' );
