the Registry currently has support for uploading binary plugins, so those

How the binary plugins arrive in the registry is a different issue. I don't
have much to offer on that front, because I can't compile for Windows and
Mac OS X. However, I could say that if we create an API-interface,
downloading and compiling a lot of plugins could probably be automated.

It's a wee bit more complicated. Think of e.g. security concerns.
Sure, you can sit down and analyze the code of every submitted plugin,
but this solution is not scalable, and a scalable solution (as in
"automated check for exploits") is likely to be expensive.

Which brings us back to the same old question about money and human resources.
