Comment(by scribu):

 > In my experience, most plugins work just fine with no knowledge of being
 used in a "network", because they don't use any custom tables, and are
 accessing WP tables via $wpdb->prefix and not $table_prefix.

 For example, If they need to set some options, (options are per-site), and
 don't account for network activation, problems do appear.

 Replying to [comment:32 coolmann]:
 > I think it should be up to each plugin developer to decide if his/her
 plugin needs to be multisite aware or not.

 Indeed. The modification I posted above is entirely optional.
