Super Plugin Application

Anybody know of a plugin application that can install almost all of the plugins needed? I've noticed from this site that installing plugins can really frustrate newbies.

If there wasn't an application created yet I wanted to get some opinions on how we could create a script like this. Maybe use apt or wget to download the plugins and then it would just be a matter of having the user type in the browser they wanted to install the plugins for.

(P.S. I don't mean like codeweavers plugin. An app that can install all FREE plugins.)

Plugger is sorta like that. It does a decent job too, it's just that most of your non-n00b types don't prefer EVERYTHING installed, but rather like to pick and choose what they want.

However, here's the link if you are interested:

Plugger does a decent job, and I think mandy uses it by default.
