 Keep in mind that [http://trac.wordpress.org/browser/trunk/wp-includes
 /link-template.php#L1041 plugins_url()] exists.

 It creates a URL based on {{{$url = plugins_url('my-plugin-

 Maybe instead, that function should be extended as such:
 $url = plugins_url('style.css', __FILE__);
 function plugins_url($file = '', $relative = '') {
 if ( ! empty($relative) )
     $url .= dirname(plugin_basename($relative))
 $url .= $file;

 You get the idea..? In other words, have a 2nd param to have the URL
 created for hte plugins directory, but relative to the current plugins
