 Thanks for the feedback and additional patch, imath. I'm going to make the
 executive decision to move this to the 2.0 milestone. I'd like to make
 this a major project for the 2.0 release, and in particular, I would like
 to take this opportunity to rethink the way that group extensions interact
 with the group creation process (#3717). I think we need quite a bit more
 time to think about the intended functionality, and to talk about the UX.

 > My goal wasn't really to toggle, i wanted to find a way to let the
 superadmin making globally unavailable plugins group extensions or simply
 leave them available.

 Maybe I misread the original patch, then. The way I read it, individual
 group settings for extensions overrode the global settings. Maybe this
 makes sense when the only person who can manage extensions is the super
 admin. Or maybe I was just mistaken in the way I read it. In any case, I
 still think that the ideal functionality will allow the super admin *both*
 to set a _default_ and to set an _override_ for individual group settings.

 >  there was also a fatal error

 Yes, my patch was pretty messy, I was just putting it up so you could see
 the more important of the differences :)

 Let's see if we can pull karmatosed into this conversation to talk more
 about the way that this interface might work in 2.0 (both from the super
 admin point of view and the group admin point of view).
