[wp-hackers] plugin updater mechanism

 I may be missing something in my reading of the code of the automatic
plugin update facility but shouldn't it deactivate the plugin before
replacing it with the new version and then reactivate that? How else are
plugins supposed to handle versioning issues? Given the difficulty of the
actual file system code the de/re-activate stuff should be a minor fix.
