[wp-hackers] Activating another Plugin when Activating a Plugin

I'm a core develper on the
(a media sharing app for BuddyPress).
Our plugin has a couple of blocks of code which solve these kinds of
problems, and are, of course completely open source.
Basically, if the program installation goes terribly wrong, the plugin
enters a special "safe mode". It explains why the plugin can't start-up:
(perhaps because PHP is too old), BuddyPress is disabled, SQL server is
wrong version, etc. ...and in some cases gives a brief tutorial on how to
fix the problem.
Here here's a direct link to the relevant files on our Google SVN:
