Current revision

This is the list of plugins that are currently installed with WW. Please add opinions/reasoning on whether they should stay as part of the default install.

Plugins that aren't user-friendly stable or enough should be removed from the install. Ideally, anything that comes with WW by default shouldn't require research to use, regardless of how useful it might be.
