Just like WordPress has "issues" on some configurations, so too do some
plugins have issues stemming from configuration nuances.  So, a plugin
might work on the "blessed" test environment, then fail utterly in the
user's production environment.

Additionally, some plugins (like my subscribe2) don't lend themselves
well to quick testing.
