 > 1. never trust plugin authors to have all the data within 1kb at the top
 of the file, I've come accross several with huge FAQ's at the top of the
 file (and then the metadata)

 The [http://codex.wordpress.org/Writing_a_Plugin Codex] says the metadata
 should be at the top, and it's said that for almost three years, so plugin
 authors should know better.  But what plugin is an example of this?
