 one in reverse alphabetical order until the site comes back up (or
 deactivate all of them).

 Agree. Also still works if there are any cross-dependency issues with

 Only problem with 1-by-1 deactivation is that it might take a while if
 they have a lot of plugins installed. Could branch and only try this if
 they have fewer than a certain number of plugins, otherwise leave
 everything deactivated. Or, could improve it by using a binary tree
 algorithm. i.e. 1st test for errors with all plugins active; if fails,
 split plugin list in half and try on each half, etc.
