What? Why not disable editing them in the plugin menu too? I thought 
you were planning to decouple the plugins from the core tarball. 
That's where I thought the PEAR deployment stuff was headed. This is 
a serious blow toward PEAR delivery ever working with selectable plugins.

Okay, I read back a few days and see you did discuss this. But the 
reason those functions were hard to maintain was because the 
installer cheats. If you can maintain the upgrade_linksplugin 
function in install.php why can't you move that functionality to 
links/functions.inc and call plugin_upgrade_links instead?

Too late now I suppose.
