Alternately, there could be some setting which says "don't load per-user
plugins, only system-wide ones".

Currently Rhythmbox has a gconf setting for this (which would be most
useful as a mandatory option so user's can't change it), but if there
was some shared plugin architecture then a destkop-wide setting would
probably be useful.
