Support optional (non-builtin) plugins

Michael Gratton requested to merge mjog/user-plugins into mainline

This branch does the following:

  • Adds a distinct notion of optional (i.e. not-auto-loaded) plugins, ensures these plugins are not loaded by default
  • Adds a UI and GSettings for enabling optional plugins
  • Adds set of interfaces that are more-or less API-stable for plugins to access common application objects
  • Reworks and updates notification plugins to use the new API
  • Converts the Unity Messaging Menu plugin to be optional, since the messaging menu is no longer used on standard Ubuntu installs.

See #155
