I have been testing the auto-install and the upload feature to
create/copy the required directories and files on Windows (Vista) this

It successfully created the directories if they were missing and
over-wrote files as required.

I have an idea now for SOC 2009: Implement a REST based plugin DEPOT
service and we can host the plugins on geeklog.net (or other locations).
Add blocks to this service adn we will have a way for sites to explore
and add components online and query if updates are available - like
