For plugin functions that are "optional" to implement, I'd suggest creating
them commented out. That way all that is needed to implement a function is
to un-comment it and fill in the blanks. This could apply to the SQL file
too, as not all plugins necessarily have SQL tables.

I think this is a great idea provided it can overridden if a plugin wants to
handle search or syndication itself. For instance, if a plugin uses mysql's
fulltext search.
